A pizzeria in Montreal North was firebombed early Wednesday morning, the third time the business has been hit by an arson attack.

Champion Pizza on de Charleroi Street was the target of attempted arson in December 2011, said Montreal police spokeswoman Anie Lemieux, and it was also firebombed in November 2010.

Lemieux said police received a 911 call at 4:20 a.m. Wednesday.

"Two suspects were seen entering the business," said Lemieux. "One of them apparently broke the window of the door, another had some kind of container with an accelerant inside."

Lemieux said firefighters put out the fire quickly, but police are on the scene investigating.
