    Doesn't look like anyone was hurt, thank goodness.

    From yahoo.com:

    (AP) - One of the top levels of the Eiffel Tower caught fire on Tuesday, officials said. A limited amount of smoke could be seen rising from the famous Paris monument. The company that operates the Eiffel Tower confirmed the fire but gave no details as to its origin and had no information about whether anyone may have been injured in the relatively small blaze affecting only the tip of the structure.

    Can it burn down? Its made of steel ... I guess if it gets hot enough. But I don't think there is enough compustibles in the tower to get that hot.

    I know it can't REALLY burn down...but everything but the frame can burn....might as well be burnt down.
