    The flames are declared in a part of the building where there was work. “The children were not in this game, but they were still evacuated and they are at the sports centre of the institution,” says France Voiselle, a spokesperson for the Department of fire prevention Québec (SPIQ).

    “Risk grading is unlikely to occur. The firemen are to ventilation and to look for the hot spots,” continues the spokesperson.

    There are no wounded.
