At 10h pm on Sunday night a complete and utterly devastating fire broke out and destroyed a beautiful heritage building used by Academy Ste-Anne in Dorval, a suburb of Montreal in Quebec, Canada. Right upon arrival at the scene on Bouchard Blvd, fire fighters observed heavy flames and engaged a simultaneous first and second alarm. In the following moments, it only became evident that the fire was going to become a major inferno. Burning flames consumed most of the large historical building and had the incident elevated to a fifth alarm. The denotation of a 5 alarm fire is the highest degree of a scale of intensity given at a fire incident for the SIM fire department in Montreal. Flames spread throughout the inside of the structure before piercing through the roof and raging high over three story tall building. Numerous ladders were initially setup at the facade on Bouchard Boulevard west of 55th Avenue in Dorval while other ladders were later added at the back of the building. Strong winds overnight have likely contributed to the severe level of this fire that destroyed everything in its path. A number of houses and apartment buildings were in the line of the smoke being blown at low level in the south direction. Fire crews battled the blaze for over 12 hours until the 10-10 end of operations code was give in the am. The fire then re-ignited in the afternoon on Monday for which SIM fire crews were deployed again. At that time two ladders were used to allow firemen to reach and put out hot spots. The 150+ year old historical multi building complex was currently used as an elementary school. The structure suffered extreme damage and a safety perimeter has been sealed off around the scene of ripped opened destroyed walls and roofs. The eye catching castle look alike education building is part of the College Ste-Anne joined with the Lachine campus. A portion of the school that was later built and added east of the older classic structure remained most entirely untouched by the otherwise devastating blaze. Throughout the intervention a number of "code red" alerts were given to warn fire crews to stay off unstable sections of floors and roofs of the building. In another rare and perhaps unprecedented twist to the spectacular incident, both the cities of Dorval and Lachine were requested to increase the water pressure in the sewer system to help fire fighters battled the blaze. Day after footage: youtu.be/N03RM7vpqTM
