Neighbours help rescue residents in apartment fire
Ottawa firefighters are battling flames in an apartment along Carling Ave., on Friday morning.
The road is closed in both directions at Sherbourne St., that is just east of the Carlingwood Mall. Reports say several people have been rescued although there is no immediate information on injuries. Crews have also been evacuating residents of other units in the building.
Flames were originally reported coming from a lower level unit in the building.
Commuters should avoid the area as crews continue to work at the scene.
