    Apparently something happened in one of the garages where quite a few exotics were parked.

    If you're interested in the article from the news, check it out here: http://www.leparisien.fr/paris-75/p...in-de-la-place-vendome-08-03-2012-1895900.php

    The perspective from GTSpirit is much more detailed however, including some really good pictures: http://www.gtspirit.com/2012/03/08/place-vendome-garage-full-of-supercars-on-fire-in-paris/

    This Google+ photo stream has some really good pictures also from someone that was at the right place at the right time: https://plus.google.com/photos/112163164359250645913/albums/5717589072314634737?banner=pwa

    As it stands the fire is now contained (after several hours) but there are reports that at least 30-40 exotic cars were damaged, with the damage well into the millions of euros. No idea what this means for the hotel structure itself, but you might wanna make a call or two if you're on your way there over the next couple of days. :)
