Bricks fall from building in Verdun, residents evacuated
MONTREAL – Residents had to be evacuated from a building in Montreal’s Verdun borough Wednesday night after bricks fell from the façade onto their front stairs.
The residential structure is located on Wellington and Gilberte-Dubé streets.
There were no reported injuries.
This comes just weeks after high winds dislodged a brick wall in the Parc-Extension neighbourhood, killing one man.
