Police investigating Bury fires

By Gordon Lambie

An early Saturday morning fire that destroyed the house at 621 McIver Street in Bury has been added to an ongoing investigation into fires on that street by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).
According to SQ spokesperson Stephane Tremblay the fire, which started around 2:40 a.m., was the second on that property in as many days, and the third on the street since May 18.
The officer said that another fire completely destroyed the home at 856 McIver on May 18, although the fire department closed that file without transferring it to the police. Ten days later, early in the morning of May 28, another fire call came in for the house at 621. This second fire was brought under control, only resulting in damage to one wall, but the firefighters transferred the investigation because the circumstances were deemed suspicious and the cause undetermined.
