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

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.
