A devastating fire took place on Friday at 9:00 p.m., destroying 149 homes in two buildings on Brunswick Boulevard in Dollard-des-Ormeaux. One hundred firefighters from the Service de sécurité incendie Montréal were deployed to control the flames and three hundred individuals were evacuated safely. The SPVM and our Municipal Patrol were on site to assist with the victims. Thankfully, everyone is safe and no lives were lost.

“I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support by our residents and our local non-profit organizations,” expressed Mayor Bottausci. “Our focus right now is helping the fire victims in any way we can. I thank the West Island non-profit organizations for their partnership in finding solutions for our residents”. 

Most victims of the fire were able to stay with family and friends and the rest were relocated in hotels. The City is currently collaborating with the administration of the buildings, the Red Cross, the Office municipal d’habitation de Montréal and local,
non-profit organizations to find long-term solutions for the fire victims.
