Pot growing facility catches fire in St. Leonard

Montreal firefighters were called Thursday afternoon to battle another one of those large, smoky fires, visible for miles around — this time, it was in St. Leonard.

And it might have smelled a bit like Tam Tam Sunday — a legal cannabis production facility was on fire, on Bombardier St. near Lafrenaie.

About 60 firefighters were called at around 2 p.m. Thursday to bring the blaze under control.

The roof of the facility caved in, but no one was hurt.
