Police in the Outaouais region of Quebec reported they'll be fining 83 international students $1,000 each after breaking up an Airbnb house party in Chelsea, Que., on Saturday night.

MRC des Collines police sent out a tweet stating they received a call from neighbours about loud noise coming from the rental in the Tulip Valley neighbourhood.

"83 people identified in an Airbnb in Chelsea having a party. All students. $1,000 fine for each. The investigation continues," the tweet in French said.

"When we arrived there, there was at least 80 to 200 persons in the house," Staff Sgt. Josée Forest told CBC News, adding that the person who rented the home was not present.

The event occurred a day prior to the day that Quebec Premier François Legault extended the red alert zone lockdowns until November 23.
