This is not the first time vehicles have been set on fire in the borough.
In March, Montreal police received several 911 calls about two cars engulfed in flames at the intersection of Saint-Real and McDuff streets.
Firefighters said extensive damage to those two vehicles made it difficult to determine the cause of the fire.
