Police probe after fire destroys second business on Curé Labelle Blvd.

The Laval Fire Department has mandated the Laval Police Department to investigate whether there were any criminal motives behind two fires since 2017 at side-by-side businesses on Curé Labelle Blvd. – the second of which destroyed a bar during the night of Tuesday May 5.

The first business, the former Soouund Bar at the corner of 81st Ave., was destroyed by a fire in March 2017. Firefighters responded to another fire this past Tuesday around 10:30 pm and were confronted with a blaze that was already out of control. They estimated the building to be a write-off, with damage amounting to around $200,000.
