Wow, 2 entries in one day for me, it’s a record!
I had heard some talk just before the lunch hour about a fire downtown, the latest rumour was that it was part of Concordia University that was up in flames. Turns out it was a couple of blocks West of there between St. Marc and St. Mathew on Ste. Catherine, I don’t really know much more than that at the moment, but I did manage to snap this with my cameraphone (Sadly, I left my main camera at the office during lunch). Here’s the snippet from CTV News:
A major fire burned out of control Tuesday morning in Downtown Montreal. Flames broke out around 10:00 a.m. and spread quickly through the century-old building at 1811 Ste-Catherine West between St-Marc and St-Mathieu. The three-storey commercial-residential building housed a restaurant and depanneur on the ground floor and apartments in the upper floors. Surrounding streets were closed and drivers are being warned to avoid the area.
