The Police Department of the City of Montreal (SPVM) is investigating a nebula explosion signaled by Canada Post factor within its own delivery truck in Pointe-Saint-Charles.
Shortly before 15h, “when he returned to his truck after a delivery, he heard a bang,” said Benoit Boisselle, spokesman of the SPVM.
The alert led to the evacuation of a large area in the sector, the authorities fearing another explosion.
But at 20h, the police had found “no trace of the explosion,” Mr. Boisselle said.
The investigation continues to determine the source of the blast indicated by the factor.
