A building housing French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen's campaign headquarters was hit by a arson attempt on Thursday, firefighters and police said, with only minor damage caused.
A fire service spokesman said the fire was "quickly brought under control" and damaged only the door and a doormat.
The upper floors of the building, on one of the French capital's most exclusive streets close to the president's Elysee Palace official residence, house the campaign offices of far-right National Front (FN) leader Le Pen.
The anti-globalisation, anti-EU Le Pen is neck-and-neck with centrist Emmanuel Macron in polls for the first round of the election on April 23.
A police source said the cause of the fire was "not natural and probably criminal", adding that the graffiti slogan "FN vs KLM" was found nearby.
