    REPENTIGNY | The building housing Innotech Engine and at least one other company, Machining Frajan, in the industrial park of Repentigny, was destroyed by fire late Friday afternoon.

    A call indicating that a fire was raging at that place, has been housed in the 911 at 16: 10. Nearly an hour later, because of the intensity of the blaze, the fire service of Repentigny were always on the defensive, told QMI Agency the deputy director of the service, Marc Rocheleau.

    The fire was finally under control after three hours of work.

    Fifty firefighters were dispatched to the scene. Fire services from neighbouring municipalities have been requested in the reinforcement.

    According to Mr. Rocheleau, the building is a total loss. He said that the cause of the fire was not yet known.

    No one has been injured, has underlined the deputy director.

    Innotech Engine is an enterprise specialized in the reconditioning of engines and performance parts, while Machining Frajan is, as its name indicates, a machine shop. Machining Frajan had its premises at the rear of the destroyed building Friday.
