Your morning news roundup for Thursday, July 3rd 2008:

For the second time in a row, the Bar Stéréo in the Village was just too hot to handle, and a fire ravaged the club. The fire started around 2:30 this morning and the building, located on the corner Amherst and Sainte-Catherine, suffered important damages. Since the origin of the fire was suspect, an investigation was opened by the Criminal Fire team.

Québec City, our dear Vieille Capitale, is celebrating its 400th birthday today. That's what we call life expectancy.
