    NICOLET | A fire broke out Saturday morning in a building of the company’s Mattress René, Nicolet, in Centre-du-Québec.

    According to the authorities, it was around 10: 40 a.m. that the emergency services have been notified of the fire that raged on the rue Napoléon-Rousseau. No one was injured.

    An explosion occurred inside the building, where a part of the production, could be at the origin of the flames.

    The building, which is a total loss, also served as a warehouse, has emphasized the mayor of Nicolet, Geneviève Dubois, in an interview with TVA News.

    “It is sure that it is a total loss, but it could have been worse,” she said.

    The proximity of other buildings has become more complicated with the intervention of the fire brigade and the municipality has been without electricity for almost 90 minutes.
