The police arson squad will investigate a fire which broke out overnight in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district, on St.Catherine and Pie-IX.
An old residential-commercial building on Ste Catherine near Pie Neuf caught fire last night, leaving ten people homeless. There were no injuries.
As many as 250 firefighters were involved in all. Because of the cold, they were rotated in groups to deal with the blaze.
Police do not currently suspect any criminal involvement.
