Homes gutted in H300 housing development fire
Nobody was injured in an overnight fire March 22 that destroyed four semi-detached houses and left another heavily damaged. The homes at the corner of rue des Coccinelles and rues des Chenilles are located in the new H300 housing development. Firefighters battled heavy winds and below seasonal freezing temperatures to control the blaze.
Despite early media reports that deemed the fire ‘suspicious,’ Sûreté du Québec (SQ) spokesperson Sgt. Joyce Kemp said the fire is not considered criminal in nature and police were not investigating. “The officers were just there early in the morning to lend a hand with traffic control,” she told Your Local Journal.
