The Hawkesbury Fire Department investigated a call at the Hawkesbury offices of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton last week, after a strong burning smell permeated the offices located at 144 Main Street East.

According to Fire Chief Roger Champagne, the origin of the smell was from a rooftop air conditioning unit compressor.

“We accessed the roof using a ladder truck and disconnected the unit. We didn’t encounter any difficulties,” stated Champagne.

Once the situation was under control, specialist technicians took over to resolve the issue. No one was injured.
