Police say a Laval man appears to have been targeted by arsonists for the second time this week.

A fire overnight in Chomedey heavily damaged a property belonging to notary Jean-François Taillefer.

Firefighters found traces of accelerant at the scene.

Earlier this week a building operated by Taillefer at the Château Taillefer Lafon vineyard in Sainte-Dorothée was also damaged by a suspicious fire.
