Bathurst fire displaces apartment residents

A fire in downtown Bathurst on Tuesday led to the evacuation of several apartments and damaged a restaurant scheduled to open in two weeks.

Firefighters contained the flames to the upstairs apartments of the King Avenue building.

Fire officials say the blaze was contained quickly and there were no injuries.

Aubie's bistro was set to open in two weeks in what was once a coffee shop.

The afternoon fire happened just across the street from where a large blaze claimed a historic section of the city in November 2015.

That fire destroyed two buildings, damaged two others and left 50 people displaced.
