Quebec City firefighters battle flames in Montcalm neighbourhood
Three firefighters brought to hospital with injuries
More than 50 Quebec firefighters were on the scene of a fire in Quebec City's Montcalm neighbourhood, working to control flames that broke out around 5:30 a.m.
Crews were called to a building which houses a restaurant, a bar and apartments at the corner of Sainte-Foy Road and Cartier Avenue early Wednesday morning.
Three firefighters have been brought to hospital with injuries.
All traffic was redirected away from Sainte-Foy — one of the main arteries for people heading downtown for work.
An apartment building next door was been evacuated and classes were cancelled at Joseph-François-Perrault high school for the day.
