Molotov cocktail targets Saint-Laurent business
The Montreal Police Department (SPVM) is investigating the arson attack after a business in Montreal’s Saint-Laurent neighborhood was damaged by a Molotov cocktail early Thursday morning.
According to an SPVM spokesperson, the fire started around 2:15 a.m. in a building on Montpellier Boulevard.
One of the building’s windows was smashed. The fire itself did not cause too much damage, probably due to the sprinkler system.
Firefighters on the scene discovered the remains of a Molotov cocktail inside and alerted the SPVM.
No injuries were reported and there are no suspects.
Investigators will analyze the scene on Wednesday and review security camera footage to gather more information.
