Swingers Club Fire Forces Some Patrons to Flee Naked
A morning fire at a downtown Montreal swingers club forced some members to flee naked.
Firefighters are still investigating the cause of the fire that broke out about 6:30 a.m., ET on Friday.
Five of those clients were trapped in rooms on the second floor. CBC reporter Melissa Kent spoke to some who tried to flee but found the exits blocked. Facing clouds of smoke and windows that wouldn't open, patrons tried to make their escape by using a television to break the glass.
Six people have suffered minor smoke inhalation.
Firefighters believe the fire was accidental, likely caused by an electrical problem in the basement sauna.
