Fire burning at legendary Le Studio in Morin Heights

A spokesman for the Sûreté du Québec has confirmed that firefighters  are battling a blaze at Le Studio in Morin Heights this morning.

The first call to firefighters came in at around 5:30.

Police suspect the fire was an act or arson because the property has been abandoned for years.

Le Studio was created by legendary Quebec producer Andre Perry and two friends in the 1970's.

Performers such as Cat Stevens, The Police, Rush and the Bee Gees were all clients of Le Studio.

The property was abandoned in 2008 and was put up for sale in 2015.
