Montreal police are investigating after the offices of the city's Haitian community radio station were set on fire early Monday morning.

Firefighters say a fire was set in two different floors at the St-Michel offices of CPAM 1610 just before 4 a.m.

When emergency crews arrived at the scene, they found the front window of the Crémazie Boulevard building broken.

Emergency officials said the fires did cause damage, but didn't give a cost estimate.

No one was hurt.

The fires were deemed suspicious, and the Montreal police arson squad is now investigating.

CPAM is a popular French-language AM station that caters to the city's Haitian, Hispanic and African communities.
