Near-naked flee swingers’ club fire
The cause of a Montreal fire at a swingers' club that had patrons fleeing nearly naked early Friday was under investigation, firefighters said.
Fire alarms began sounding around 6:30 a.m. at the Auberge 1082 club with three employees and seven customers inside, fire spokesman Gilles Ducharme told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
A resident of a nearby apartment building who asked not to be identified told the CBC it was
a sight to behold as near-naked people descended the ladders.
The club operates a sauna in the basement and rooms on the second floor, while the ground floor is an extermination business, the report said.
Ducharme said a final determination of the cause hadn't been ascertained, although early indications pointed to the electrical system of the sauna, the CBC said.
