Boulangerie Chartrand bakery is closed following fire

The Boulangerie Chartrand bakery in Saint-Antoine-Abbé is closed temporarily, following a fire at the bakery on May 20.

According to Alexandre Moise of the Service de sécurité-incendie (SSI) in Franklin, the fire department received the call around 9 p.m. from the bakery owners. The fire was located outside of the main bakery area and was not very involved. As a result, firefighters were able to control and extinguish the small blaze quite quickly.

In a post to social media, the owners of the bakery confirmed that no one was hurt in the fire. “Everyone is fine. It’s only material damage, but we will have to take the time to get everything sorted out before we can see you again,” they explained.

The firefighters from Franklin were joined by those from neighbouring departments in Howick and Tres-Saint-Sacrément, Ormstown, Hinchinbrooke, and Saint-Chrysostome.

The cause of the fire has not been determined. (SR)
