Woman rescued from burning Gatineau apartment
Fifteen people are displaced after an apartment fire in Gatineau’s Buckingham neighbourhood Thursday night.
Gatineau fire officials said in a news release they were called to a three-story building at 375 Des Pines Street around 7:30 p.m.
They said crews helped around 15 people get out of the building, including a woman who had to be rescued from a second-floor window using a ladder.
Damage to the building and its contents is estimated at $200,000.
The Gatineau Red Cross is offering help to the displaced residents.
