At 1h am this morning fire broke out at an apartment building on Maple Grove Blvd at the corner of Des Bouleaux Street in Beauharnois, Quebec, Canada. Firemen responded to what appeared to be a fully involved third floor of a three story residential complex. The structure was occupied at the time and dozens of people had to evacuate and relocate. About 15 services from neighboroing cities gathered and combined their efforts to get a grip on the challenging intervention. Over 100 fire fighters were involved in battling the blaze under frigid temperatures. Crews had to relay with firetrucks back to nearby firehalls to thaw off equipment and warm up before coming back out again. Mechanical parts on some apparatus could be seen and heard reacting poorly to the cold and making it harder for firemen to extinguish the blaze. At 3h am the fire was still active, showing flames coming out of the roof area and dense smoke being carried away by the wind. Crews faced extreme weather condition and were exposed to -25 Celsius (-13 F) temperatures with a wind chill factor lowering it close to -35 Celsius (-31 F). Simultaneously, local fire crews also battled another fire only a few minutes away at the Rio Tinto installations in Beauharnois. Some units were spotted going from one fire scene to the other in this rare occurrence. 

À 1h ce matin un incendie s'est déclaré dans un édifice à appartements du boulevard Maple Grove au coin de la rue des Bouleaux à Beauharnois. Les pompiers ont découvert un immeuble de trois étage avec le dernier étage complètement embrasé. Les occupants ont évacué et ont été relocalisés avec l'aide de la Croix Rouge. Environ 15 services de municipalités avoisinnantes se sont déplacés en ont combiné leurs efforts pour combattre le brasier difficile. Plus de cent pompiers ont été impliqués dans l'intervention dans la météo extrème que connait plusieurs régions ces derniers jours. Les pompiers ont du se relayer pour aller réchauffer les camions et équipements dans les casernes. À 3h ce matin l'incendie était toujours actif et montrait des flammes s'échappant du toit de la structure et une fumée dense. Les équipes de secours ont été exposés à des températures de -25 degrés avec un facteur vent de -35 degrés. En même temps, les équipes d'urgence locales ont combattu un autre incendie à seulement quelques minutes de route aux installations de Rio Tinto à Beauharnois.
