Empty condo building in St-Henri catches fire

No one was injured after a major fire Friday evening at an empty building in Montreal's St-Henri neighbourhood.

Thick smoke and large flames several meters high could be seen bursting from the roof of the condominium, located near the corner of Rose-de-Lima and Saint Jacques Streets.

No one was in the building at the time, due to renovation work.
