FIRE, Pt. St. Charles

More than 125 Montreal firefighters are still fighting a five-alarm fire that started around 2 a.m. in a commercial building at 1830 Le Ber St. in Pointe St. Charles.

The building, which houses a paper recycling company and has 450,000 square feet of space, partially collapsed on one side Saturday morning.
