Montreal firefighters had to rescue workers on top of an apartment building on Cavendish Boulevard in Côte Saint-Luc this morning.

The workers were standing on suspended scaffolding near the top of the building just before 8:30 a.m.

When fire crews arrived at the building, near the corner of Kildare Road, the scaffolding had given out and was hanging at a roughly 45-degree angle.

The fire department says things are now under control.

The intersection at Cavendish Boulevard and Kildare Road was closed as a result of the rescue operation. (Mathieu Wagner/Radio-Canada)
