Tragedy for Damas

Another Montreal restaurant was the victim of a probable arson attempt at 5 a.m. today. The unfortunate casualty this time is Damas, a Syrian restaurant that has garnered universal critical praise since it opened on du Parc in 2011.

"There are certain indications that we have in the fire scene that it was suspicious, therefore the fire will be transferred to the Montreal police department," fire department operations chief Ian Ritchie tells the CBC.

It took a team of 40 firefighters an hour and a half to extinguish the blaze.
