One man is in hospital being treated for burns and smoke inhalation after a fire in Lachine.
Firefighters received the call for the fire on 24th Avenue, near Provost Street, just before 5:30 a.m.
The flames broke out on the second floor of a three-storey apartment block.
Residents of three of the eight units in the building are now under the care of the Red Cross because of the damage to their apartments.
Operations Chief Martin Guilbault says the fire does not appear to be suspicious.
But he said the investigation into the cause of the fire has been handed over to the Montreal police because of the injury.
Cst. Louis Héroux says the man's injures are not life-threatening.
