Eighty firefighters of the Service de protection contre l’incendie de Québec sprayed the surrounding wooded area to prevent the spread of the fire under the power lines, resulting in the appearance of a “Ça va bien aller” rainbow in the mist from the fire hose.

On May 21, a brush fire spread underneath the Hydro-Québec transmission towers in the Val-Bélair district of Quebec City. Four fire alarms called 80 firefighters from the Service de protection contre l’incendie de Québec (SPCIQ) to the site.
