A marijuana grow-op was discovered as firefighters battled a blaze in an apartment in Montreal’s Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension borough.
Officers were called to the scene around 4:10 a.m. to the home on 41st Street, near Pie-Ix Boulevard.
“Firemen discovered a marijuana plantation,” explained Jean-Pierre Brabant, a spokesperson for Montreal police.
“More than 100 plants were found inside.”
There were no reported injuries and no arrests have been made.
According to Daniel Lacoursière, a spokesperson for Montreal police, the cause of the fire was most likely related to the electricity lines.
The investigation is ongoing.
