Fires rip through homes in Laval, Montreal
Plateau neighbourhood fire considered suspicious, handed over to police
Fire tore through two buildings in Montreal and Laval late Monday.
The first broke out on the fourth floor of an apartment building on Marie-Anne Street, in the Plateau neighbourhood around 9:30 p.m.
No one was hurt, but the investigation has been turned over to Montreal police, according to fire operations chief Ian Ritchie.
Ritchie says there were elements that appeared suspicious so the investigation was handed over to Montreal police.
Then, just before midnight, another fire destroyed one home and heavily damaged another on Sainte-Rose Boulevard in Laval's Fabreville neighbourhood.
One firefighter sustained burns to his face.
No one was hurt and the cause of the fire is not yet known.
