A gas station was kindled Sunday morning in Saint-Ludger, a municipality of the MRC du Granit, showing a huge smoke plume to kilometers.
The flames sprang up around 9am in the garage and Dupuis Frères, then producing a few explosions inside trade.
It would bring fortunately no injuries. The surrounding houses have however been evacuated as a precaution.
Electricity has also been cut in the municipality.
The fire would not spread to the gas pumps, but the garage is a total loss.
On Facebook, a resident of the area shared a video showing the thick plume of smoke.
