According to the Police, they were initially called to a property in Montreal’s upper-class Ahuntsic-Cartierville neighbourhood at 11:30 P.M when two people were spotted trespassing on the property.

Julien Lévesque, a media relations officer for Montreal Police, said when authorities arrived on the scene shortly thereafter they found the multi-million dollar property ablaze.

The fire was so massive that more than 80 firefighters were called in and the neighbours were forced to evacuate nearby properties.

Authorities got the fire under control by 2:30 A.M. and say no one was hurt, although several neighbours had to be evacuated. According to Lévesque:

Police officers who arrived on site were able to see that the fire began inside the residence. Earlier this morning… our arson squad from Montreal police took charge of the investigation. They were onsite this morning to analyze all the scene, meet some witnesses to try to understand what was the cause and the circumstances of the beginning of this fire.

Speaking to VICE online, Antton said:

Over the weekend, a fire occurred at my residence. The residence was under construction. I am grateful that my family and I and our neighbours are safe. Out of respect for the ongoing police investigation, I will not be commenting further.

The property, which has yet to finish construction, was only recently put up for sale by Antoon, the CEO of Mindgeek Canadian operations—the company that owns Pornhub.

However, it is unknown why the businessman is selling the massive property. The property is substantial, a write up from a real estate company has it listed for $19,800,000. It sits on 1.4 acres, has eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, and was planned to have multiple elevators.

Lévesque said that the extent of the damage was “major.”
