Arson suspected after supper club gutted by fire in downtown Montreal
A popular Montreal night spot was damaged early Monday morning.
Around 2:20 a.m., Montreal police were alerted that an alarm had been triggered within the restaurant - Soubois - located on de Maisonneuve, near Peel St.
Upon arrival, they noticed a fire propagating, and contacted the fire department.
No one was injured.
However, evidence collected from the scene indicates the fire may have been the result of arson - possibly started by a Molotov cocktail.
The SPVM says it will be examining surveillance footage from nearby businesses in order to clarify the circumstances of the fire.
An investigation is ongoing.
