Seven people are homeless and currently in the care of the Red Cross, said Public Safety Officer Leo Frappier. Firefighters responded to the call at 2:20 a.m., and by 6:30 a.m., they were leaving the scene, Frappier said.
The Ontario Fire Marshal's Office has been called in to help determine the cause and origin of the fire, Frappier said.
“By the time we arrived, the upper level of the complex was fully involved,” Frappier said. “It's difficult to narrow down where the fire started, and that's why we called in the OFM.”
In total, 27 firefighters responded from four stations.
