They then proceeded to evacuate the two-story residential building containing two dwellings, as well as the residents of the adjacent building. More than 80 firefighters are now on site. The Service de police de la Ville de Québec (SPVQ) is also present to control traffic in the area where several streets have been closed.

For its part, Hydro-Québec has carried out a remote load shedding operation that has resulted in several residences in the area being without power. The SPCIQ indicates that the risk of aggravation is still present.
