It was a sleepless night for Montreal firefighters, who battled two overnight fires in the Montreal area: A five-alarm fire took place Monday evening at an apartment building in Pierrefonds, and a duplex was heavily damaged by a possible arson fire.
A dramatic rescue operation took place at a downtown construction site Wednesday morning.
A man scaled a fence at Peel and Wellington Sts. and fell into a hole 20 metres deep. A rescue team rushed to the scene and lifted him out in a stretcher.
