A recreational vehicle and two buildings damaged by fire in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield

The Salaberry-de-Valleyfield Fire Department was called to intervene on Tuesday, July 2, around 7 p.m. at 1425 Monseigneur-Langlois Boulevard to extinguish a fire that started in a recreational vehicle. The fire damaged two adjacent buildings, including a nearby business.

The initial call was made to the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield firefighters at 7:02 p.m. precisely to report the presence of flames in a trailer parked on private property on Monseigneur-Langlois Boulevard. The risk of the fire spreading was then very present due to the proximity of adjacent buildings and the strength of the fire that a fourth alarm was necessary for the firefighters.

Their rapid and effective intervention made it possible to limit the damage caused to a residence and a business located nearby. The occupant of the main residence was able to return to the premises following our intervention, which ended around 10:30 p.m. As for the business, a cleaner, the damage was limited to an exterior wall,” says Maxime Vinet, head of operations at the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield Fire Department the day after the blaze.

A sixty-year-old man, however, suffered minor injuries. In total, ten firefighters were assigned to this intervention. A 65-year-old man who lived in the recreational vehicle suffered burns that were not life-threatening. He was taken care of by paramedics as soon as we arrived on scene. According to the testimonies collected on site and the observations made at the scene, everything seems to indicate that the cause of the fire was a mechanical failure of the recreational vehicle’s propane system,” he informs in conclusion.
