The sky shows through where the roof once stood on the Marco’s pizza restaurant on Ste. Anne Street in Ste. Anne de Bellevue. The fire broke out the morning of Tuesday, April 16 and over 80 firefighters tackled the blaze. The upper apartments were not occupied and no one was injured in the blaze.
“It’s a great loss for the community,” said Ste. Anne’s Mayor Paola Hawa. “The owner was an active member of the Société de développement commercial (SDC), a good man. I’m really sad for him.”
Hawa said the timing was especially unfortunate as the busy season of the waterfront strip, populated by many restaurants, was just about to begin.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
