2 people taken to hospital after apartment fire in central Edmonton
Two people were taken to the hospital Monday morning following a fire in an apartment building at 92 Street and 111 Avenue, according to Edmonton Fire Rescue Services (EFRS).
EFRS said it received several calls reporting smoke just after 8 a.m. Ten fire trucks were sent to the scene, EFRS said.
“Residents were the first concern for those on scene as they had to be evacuated from the building, including some with mobility issues,” EFRS told Global News in an emailed statement.
Many residents had to escape the fire by climbing a ladder off their balconies, according to EFRS.
As of 9:30 a.m., firefighters were searching the building to make sure everyone had made it out, and to retrieve any pets.
