A FIERCE fire broke out overnight in an underground parking garage at the Place Vendome, one of Paris' swankiest areas, sending a large plume of black smoke billowing into the air over the entire square.
According to Le Parisien, the fire began in a car parked in the second basement of the garage. There were no immediate reports of injuries, although one of the 90 firemen at the scene was said to have suffered smoke inhalation.
