The SPVM told MTL Blog that they are currently investigating the incident with its arson squad.
The property, which is listed for sale at $19-million, is located in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville neighbourhood on avenue Jean-Bourdon near boulevard Gouin. The mega-mansion is pictured above under construction in 2019.
"We received at around 11:30 p.m. a 911 call that two people were breaking into a private entrance under construction," explained the SPVM. Officers noted that a fire was engulfing the property and they called the Montreal fire department.
The SPVM is not ruling out that this was arson and is pending a report from its arson squad.
