The incident occurred in a building on boulevard Pierrefonds near the intersection with rue Fredmir in the borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro in the wee hours of Monday morning. Youakim said police got a call about the fire at around 2:30 a.m.

Firefighters were able to put out the blaze and didn't locate any injured individuals.

Youakim cited certain "elements" that pointed to criminal behaviour. SPVM investigators are trying to piece together exactly what happened.
