A house in the square Bonnard, in the borough of Beauport, Quebec, was completely destroyed by fire, Monday afternoon.
First responders have been contacted by many neighbors indicating that a fire had broken out behind the residence, at around 13: 30. A second alarm was immediately triggered at the arrival of the emergency services, requiring the help of a quarantine station.
As the fire quickly spread to the entire house and the roof was in danger of collapsing, the fire had to switch to the defensive in the early minutes of the intervention. A jet has also been used to prevent the spread of the fire to neighbouring buildings.
Less than twenty minutes later, the worsening is unlikely has been reported and, at 14.25, the situation was under control. No one was hurt or bothered by the smoke during the intervention, but the home was declared a total loss.
The office of the Commissioner of fire has been sent to the scene to shed light on the causes and origin of the fire.
