The flames completely destroyed the two-story house on 15th Avenue near Du Lac Boulevard.
The fire was first reported by local residents around 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
The fire required the deployment of firefighting crews from the neighboring towns of Sainte-Thérèse and Saint-Eustache.
After a preliminary investigation, traces of fire accelerants were found at the site.
According to officials, no injuries were reported and no one was in the home during the incident.
In late August, police opened two investigations into complaints of gunshots in the same neighborhood.
Police say they have no connections between the two incidents at this time.
