A fire broke out at the Hôtel Ritz this morning, just two months away from the date it was scheduled to reopen. There were no victims, but damage is significant.
The emblematic institution at Place Vendôme in Paris's 1st arrondissement had been closed for renovations since March 2012. The property was expected to open its doors again in March, but the fire could postpone that date once more. The 142-room and suite property has been owned by the Egyptian businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed since 1979.
