PR: Relief efforts for fire victims of Brunswick Boulevard
A devastating fire took place on Friday at 9:00 P.M. destroying 149 homes in two buildings on Brunswick BLVD in Dollard-des-Ormeaux.
One hundred firefighters from The Service de sécurité incendie Montréal (SIM) were deployed to control the flames and three hundred individuals were evacuated. The SPVM and our Public Security were on site to assist with the fire victims. Thankfully, everyone is safe and no lives were lost.
“I am overwhelmed by the outpour 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 fire victims were able to stay with family and friends and the rest were relocated to 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.
