A fire at the SPCA of Western Quebec, which destroyed the building, has killed an unknown number of animals.

The fire happened at the SPCA's building on rue Auguste Mondoux, just off chemin Pink, near Hull's Plateau neighbourhood. Several passers-by saw flames and called 911, before 11 p.m., Monday. When firefighters arrived, flames had engulfed the building's entire roof.

Gatineau firefighters say they rescued 12 dogs from the building before it began to collapse, forcing them to evacuate.

A fire investigator has been called in to probe the cause of the fire, which caused about $580,000 in damages.
