Molotov cocktail hits Queue de Cheval restaurant

Montreal police are investigating after a Molotov cocktail was thrown at a downtown restaurant overnight.

According to investigators, someone broke a window at Queue de Cheval on de la Montagne street around 4 a.m.

"Once police got there, the fire was almost out because of the sprinklers that went off. A person was seen running away shortly after the fire started so police officers are trying to get information on this person," says Anie Lemieux of the Montreal police.

Damage to the restaurant was limited.
