PARIS (AP) - Police say a fire broke out in clothing chain Abercrombie & Fitch's Paris flagship on the famed Champs-Elysees Avenue.
Police said no one was hurt in the early Sunday fire, which took more than two hours to put out.
Firefighters tell a local affiliate of France 3 television that an entire floor of the store was destroyed and that smoke spread throughout the building.
Firefighters were trying to air out the building, but it was unclear if the merchandise would be salvageable and when the store could re-open.
