Sorel-Tracy big-box store in flames

Firefighters are at the scene of a major fire at a big-box hardware store in Sorel-Tracy, northeast of Montreal.

The fire began at a RONA hardware store, just off Highway 30 on Saint-Louis Boulevard, and quickly spread to the store's warehouse.

It's not yet known what started the fire.

The store is right next to a gas station and not far from a residential neighbourhood.

There are no confirmed reports of injuries.  

The general-alarm fire is causing traffic problems.
