Two vehicles caught fire last night in the Mercier – Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district of Montreal, in what the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) currently associates with arson, according to spokesperson Caroline Honeysuckle.

First fire

The first fire occurred around 2 a.m. Saturday morning. An SUV was parked on rue Lacordaire, near rue Cabrini. It would have suddenly caught fire, and is now a total loss.

Firefighters were already bringing the blaze under control when police arrived, and no arrests were made.

The vehicle was towed, and the investigation is ongoing. No one was injured in this fire, and no damage occurred to property.

Second fire

The second fire was reported in a private entrance located on Rosemont Boulevard, near Repentigny Avenue.

Officers received a 9-1-1 call at 2:45 a.m., and located the SUV under a carport upon arrival.

According to information provided to the police, two suspects were seen throwing an incendiary object at the vehicle, then fled on foot.

The vehicle is a total loss. The incident caused no injuries. The investigation is currently underway in this case.

Similar events

Recall that a similar event had occurred in this same residence on Rosemont Boulevard, last November.

For the moment, although the two fires occurred in the same borough, there is no reason to believe that they could be linked.

The SPVM mentions that it will provide more information on this subject soon.
