Three fires across the city kept Montreal firefighters busy Thursday morning, and police consider one of them suspicious.
Police said witnesses reported seeing two people throw what appeared to be a molotov cocktail into a restaurant at the corner of St-Michel and Champdore in Montreal North around 1 a.m.
The restaurant was damaged in the ensuing fire and 12 apartments above had to be evacuated.
No one was hurt in the fire.
In the Rosemont-Petite-Patrie borough, firefighters responded to a kitchen fire at the Elio pizzeria at Bellechasse and Drolet streets around 4 a.m.
No injuries were reported and fire officials believe it was accidental.
Firefighters also responded to a minor fire at a three-storey boarding house on Montcalm Street in Montreal’s Gay Village.
No injuries were reported in that fire.
