As reports roll in about the 18 week Yellow Vest protest along Paris' landmark Champs-Elysees avenue, with them are also reports of businesses being vandalized, looted and set on fire.

A bank that was set on fire is located on the ground floor of an apartment building. 

Firefighters had to evacuate the building of its residents which included a nine-month-old baby before putting out the blaze.
