Fernand Thibeault

On July 7, 1999, the 911 call centre of the Drummondville municipal police force received a call about a fire at Bar Le Vog. When the firefighters arrived a few minutes after the call, the front windows were broken and flames were clearly visible.

On site, the manager of the security guard agency informed the firefighters that his father-in-law, Fernand Thibeault, was on duty inside and that his vehicle was still in front of the bar. However, the intensity of the fire and the heat prevented the firefighters from entering and getting Mr. Thibeault out.

Neighbours informed the authorities that, a few minutes before the fire, two men were seen throwing something through the bar's window, then lighting the fire and running away.
