Woman injured in Terrebonne fire overnight
Woman found outside home on firefighters' arrival
A fire broke out in a home Wednesday night on St-Louis Street in Terrebonne, north of Montreal, injuring one woman, firefighters say.
The city's fire chief, Sylvain Dufresne, said the woman was already outside when firefighters arrived.
Dufresne said the woman suffered burns and was immediately taken to hospital. She is now in stable condition.
The chief said firefighters battled strong flames on the building's first floor as smoke had engulfed the entire structure. He said they wanted to make sure no one was on the second floor.
