At 6h pm last night fire broke out on the ground floor of a two story building with a one story extension at the back, commercial restaurant on the ground floor and residential on the top floor in Ste-Therese, Quebec, Canada. Multiple cities came on mutual aid to help battle the stubborn 5 alarm fire in the small municipality just north of Montreal. Crews from Hydro Quebec were deployed in the early stages of the incident to shut power in the vicinity. One person was also found and transported to hospital with serious injuries also in the early stages of the incident. Firemen used ladders to reach the roof of the structure to put water on the fire from an elevated vantage point. They also used saws to cut their way to reach difficult spots. In the later stages of the incident, flames started showing on the D side of the building and appear to have fully involved the back part of the structure. Police officers from the Regie Intermunicipale de Police de Therese de Blainville (RIPTB) blocked nearby roads to allow fire fighting operations to continue in the downtown core of the municipality. Freezing temperatures caused the water used by firemen to form a icy wrap around equipment and debris from the structure. Crews used pike poles to rip open parts of the facade while perched on an articulated platform at the front of the building. The lengthy and challenging intervention had crews mobilized until the early hours of today.

À 18h hier soir un important incendie a ravagé un édifice de la rue Blainville dans le centre-ville de Ste-Thérèse. Un restaurant au premier étage et des logements au deuxième sembles avoir subit des dommages irréparables. Plusieurs municipalités sont venues en entraide. Une personne aurait été blessée lors de l'incident mais on ignore l'état à jour de sa santé. Les équipes d'Hydro Québec ont été déployés rapidement pour couper l'électricité dans le secteur. Les pompiers ont utilisé plusieurs échelles pour monter sur le toit d'édifices avoisinants afin d'éteindre le feu d'un point surélevé. Ils ont aussi utilisé des scies pour accéder plus facilement à la structure. Les policiers ont assuré le périmètre pour aider le travail des pompiers dans le centre-ville de la municipalité située au nord de Montréal. Après plusieurs heures de combat, le feu a fait rage dans la partie D de l'édifice engouffrant complètement une extension à l'arrière de l'édifice principal. Des températures froides ont contribué au gèle d'équipement et ont formés des glaçons sur les débris de l'édifice. À un certain point, les pompiers ont utilisé des pôles pour ouvrir et démolir des parties de la façade de l'édifice, provoquant des flammes qui sortaient des ouvertures. L'incident a paralysé le secteur jusqu'aux petites heures du matin.
