Several families were put up by the Red Cross overnight after fire swept through a three story apartment building on de Salaberry south of Gouin in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough late last night.

Flames broke out on the second floor last evening and spread to the roof.

The fire was extinguished at around 1 AM.

Firefighters report part of the building was being renovated at the time, but five apartments were evacuated.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire is unknown.
