Jury choi MONTREAL fCP) A coro- ner recommended Thursday that charges be laid against several people and that a top Montreal fire department of.'i- oer be replaced as a result of a fire that killed eight pers last month. At least five of the eight coulJ have been saved if the fire alarm and emergency lighting had been working, the coroner said.
