If you were walking on St. Laurent today, you may have found the air to be a bit smokier than usual.

The building housing Maison Thai and three floors of residences, right at St. Laurent and Roy, caught fire shortly after noon.

Emergency respondents were quickly on the scene to fight the blaze. No news yet as to how the building caught fire but CBC speculates the fire began at Maison Thai and worked its way up.

Jason Mousseau managed to document the scene with his camera. YouTuber Dan Blachard was also present and filmed Montreal's firefighters battling the rooftop blaze.

See how it all went down through the photos below, and scroll down for the video.
