Moncton apartment building evacuated after paper carrier sees smoke


A 10-storey apartment building in Moncton was evacuated, including some tenants who were carried down several flights of stairs by firefighters, after a fire in an eighth-floor unit early Saturday morning. At about 4:30 a.m., a newspaper carrier noticed smoke coming from under the door of the Cameron Street apartment, said Moncton Fire platoon chief Rob Brine. The elderly female tenant was treated at hospital for smoke inhalation and released. Firefighters were on scene for about three hours and were able to contain the fire to the one unit, Brine said. The Red Cross said about eight adult tenants have been temporarily displaced, including the woman in the apartment where the fire started.
