Vigil tonight for 18 dogs killed in St Lazare kennel fire

Fire has been ruled accidental

A vigil Thursday evening for the 18 dogs killed in a kennel fire during the holidays.

The blaze broke out December 28th in St Lazare and has been ruled an accident.

The vigil is scheduled for 7 o'clock at the Pitou Minou pet food store at 3100 Harwood in the Hudson shopping center.

"This is something that when there's a loss of this magntiude in a community, we would do for people and just recognizing that the role that these dogs had in their families' lives was that of a family member. It's the least we can do", said vigil organizer Caroline Guy.
