Record Staff – The City of Magog held a press briefing at noon Wednesday to take stock of the situation following the fire that ravaged part of its downtown area on Tuesday. The cause of the fire has been confirmed. The Director of the Fire Department, Mr. Sylvain Arteau, indicated that the investigation identified that the most likely cause would be the fall of a Bell Canada pole on which an electrical transformer was located, which would have caused a short circuit in the electrical room of the building located at 12 Deragon Street. An official report will follow. See full story in the Thursday, October 18 edition of The Record.
