The Sûreté du Québec is investigating a fire at a garage in Kuujjuaq in which a person was found dead.

The fire occurred on March 10 at around 4:30 a.m., said Sgt. Hugues Beaulieu, a spokesman for the provincial police force,

After the fire was extinguished, police and firefighters investigated the scene, Beaulieu said. When they found a body, the case was sent to provincial police to investigate.

“We sent a technician to the scene of the fire to establish the causes and the circumstances of the fire,” Beaulieu said.

Beaulieu said the investigation should determine if the fire was accidental or intentional. At this point, police have not identified the person who was found dead, and no arrests have been made, he added.

    Why is this news all opposite of what really happened. After the fire everyone left including the police and the firefighters without checking what is in the garage, but since two people actually checked the garage that’s when they saw a femur luckily the other knew what a femur looks like so they called the cops to come check it out and batch 1023 came but he was refusing it’s a femur saying it’s a dog even the cop batch 1023 was told to Analyze it because he wasn’t taking it seriously.
    You guys made a interview with few people why isn’t any of them on this also? This system is a joke
