Fire destroys Le Cardinal golf club in Laval

Despite the work of dozens of firefighters, an overnight fire left Laval's Le Cardinal golf club in ruins.

The fire department received the call at about 11 p.m. Monday night.

Some 40 firefighters battled the flames for three hours before they were brought under control.

The lack of fire hydrants on the grounds complicated the situation for firefighters, who had to use tanker trucks to transport water to the site.

The fire continued to smoulder early Tuesday morning.

No one was injured in the fire.
