The police were alerted by a call to 911 which reported around 4 a.m. a business on fire in a building located on rue Jean-Talon Est, near rue de Fontecelle.

The firefighters dispatched to the scene quickly brought the fire under control, before noticing the presence of an incendiary object thrown against the window of the establishment.

Damage to the building was minor, but huge inside the business, as residents of upper-floor accommodation were temporarily evacuated.

SPVM investigators should move on site to analyze the scene protected by a security perimeter, it was added.
