Quebec’s provincial police are investigating what they say is a suspicious fire in St-Paul-d’Abbotsford, 45 minutes east of Montreal.

Firefighters were called to an abandoned warehouse nearby Highway 112 around 1:30 a.m. ET Thursday.

The fire was so large, firefighters needed reinforcements from surrounding municipalities to help extinguish the flames.

The building was completely destroyed.

A spokesperson from Quebec’s provincial police said the cause of the fire is unknown, but investigators are on the scene to try and determine what happened.

At this time, police have no suspects.
