A general-alarm fire did serious damage to the Ciot store and warehouse on Saint-Laurent near Chabanel.

Looks like someone was late with the money in the envelope.
DO you mean Brown Envelope .
If so , well what a shame!
Actually… they had just finished massive renovations and new constructions.. something went wrong with the wiring… its sad that people assume otherwise
@ SAN “something went wrong with the wiring”
Yes, because wiring is so complex that it can explode at any time.
The business deals in stone slabs and ceramics – not the most flammable of products.
@Kate, which is probably why the fire started in the office, according to the news report. :)
Too bad it isn’t downtown, where the flood going down McTavish would have put it right out.
Michel, hmm. OK. I was just thinking that when I used to see them loading stone slabs into Ciot (I worked on Chabanel for awhile and the 55 bus stopped near the Ciot warehouse at the time) they also ended up with a lot of wooden pallets, which would make for a dandy bonfire if they were piled up somewhere. But the office, who knows.
Update, the fire happened in the warehouse, which is attached to the office which it spread to along with the brand new show room that was just built, the warehouse is OLD therefore OLD wiring and Kate is right! There is right, wooden pallets are everywhere and they just had a huge shipment come in on Friday.. So for people that assume the worst.. This was clearly an accident
Thanks for the update. I’m afraid any accident to an Italian-owned business is likely to raise eyebrows in this town.
