Police say it’s ‘improbable’ there are more than seven missing in Old Montreal fire

Montreal police say they don’t think they’ll find more than seven bodies in the rubble of an Old Montreal building that caught fire eight days ago.

Police told reporters on Friday that they don’t have reports of more people missing, adding that it’s “improbable” there are more than seven victims.

Searchers have pulled four bodies from the rubble, and only one victim has been identified: a 76-year-old woman who had lived in the building for decades.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
