Fire destroys east-end mosque
An Islamic community centre and a mattress warehouse were destroyed after a fire broke out in an east-end building Monday night.
Fire crews were called to the building at 530 Marien Ave. at 9 p.m. after a neighbour spotted smoke.
The fire started on the first floor of the building in the Matelas Signature store, according to the Montreal Fire Department.
The fire spread to the Al-Bayane community centre.
Two hours later, firefighters were still working to bring the flames under control.
No one was injured in the fire and the cause is still under investigation.
