The former Hells Angels bunker in Lennoxville caught fire Sunday morning, but the building remains relatively unscathed other than some superficial damage to the roof.
The Sûreté du Québec has determined that the fire’s origin stems from an electrical issue. However, this remains an open hypothesis, said Aurélie Guindon, an SQ spokesperson, in an interview with The Record.
The intervention of the Service de protection contre les fires de Sherbrooke (SPICS) and the Sherbrooke Police Service (SPS) arrived at the scene after the fire was reported at 8 a.m., but the investigation was transferred to the SQ major crimes division.
The Quebec government owns the bunker, Guindon explained, which is why they handed the file to the provincial police. There is no timetable for the investigation, she continued, but the current hypothesis stands unless they obtain new information.
