No injuries during a major fire at a seniors' residence in Laval Friday evening.

Police say about 80 residents were forced out, but placed in buses.

They'll be relocated in other homes.

It seems the fire began on the roof of Villa Ste Rose at 346 Marc-Aurele Fortin in the Ste Rose district.

What triggered the fire remains unknown, although it may have been an electrical problem, according to reports.

The building is said to be a total loss.
