Fire of­fi­cials say an elec­tri­cal panel caught fire in a day­care cen­tre on St. Ray­mond Boule­vard in Gatineau on Mon­day, briefly forc­ing 125 chil­dren and staff out of the build­ing. Fire­fight­ers put out the fire be­fore it spread and dam­age was mi­nor. The fireatAuPays­deCorne­muse be­gan around 9:45 a.m. and Gatineau sent eight trucks and 25 fire­fight­ers. They had the fire out within 20 min­utes, and opened up the build­ing to clear away the smoke. The cause of the fire is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, but it has been traced to an elec­tri­cal panel.
