Montreal firefighters were forced to make several trips during the night from Monday to Tuesday, four arson fires having been set during a two-hour period.

The four disasters did not cause any injuries, but one of them, which broke out around 3:35 a.m. in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce district, caused considerable damage to a building and required evacuations. An incendiary object was allegedly thrown through the window of a commercial premises on Monkland Avenue.

The flames spread to the second floor and led to several evacuations.

Earlier in the night , between 1:40 a.m. and 2:45 a.m., three more fires were started. In each case, incendiary objects were thrown through a window.

The first broke out in the Rivière-des-Prairies district, around 1:40 a.m., in a commercial building on Boulevard Maurice-Duplessis, near the intersection of 41st Avenue. The fire was quickly brought under control by firefighters from the Montreal Fire Safety Service (SSIM), which helped limit the damage.
