Apartment fire leaves one dead in Pointe-aux-Trembles

Montreal police arson investigators are probing the cause of a fire late Monday night that left a man in his 60s dead.

Firefighters were called to an apartment block on De Montigny St. in Montreal’s Pointe-aux-Trembles district about 11:45 p.m. and discovered one unit engulfed in smoke. Once inside, they discovered the body of a man in his 60s, believed to be the apartment’s tenant. His death was declared at the scene.

While the fire appeared confined to the one apartment, 15 other units were evacuated as a precaution. No other injuries were reported. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
