Fire in a Shed in Bury : A 5th in Less Than a Month


On the night of June 12 to 13, a fire broke out in a shed behind Pope Memorial Elementary School in Bury. The fifth fire in less than a month is causing public concern.

The fire is of suspicious origin and the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) is investigating it. A fire technician inspected the scene to find the cause. The building is a total loss, but luckily no one was injured.

On May 18 a first house was destroyed by fire. Another burned down on May 28 and 30, and on May 31, it was the turn of a shed in Memorial Park.
For the moment, the SQ has not said whether these events are related, and is continuing the investigations.
