CMEDIA: An update would reportedly be given by the Montral Police today on last week’s fire in Old Montreal that killed at least one person and left six missing.

The building which had caught fire was partially dismantled by Fire services over the weekend, uncovering one body Sunday evening.

Only one person was believed to be missing initially by the firefighters but later it was found that several units in the building were short-term rentals, or Airbnbs, making occupants difficult to track.

It was later confirmed by the City officials that these Airbnbs were unauthorized.
