Most of the residents were able to evacuate safely, but one was still trapped upstairs when firefighters arrived The stairwell had gone up in flames so firefighters had to climb into the building through one of the windows to look for the trapped person

The person, a woman in her sixties, was found and taken outside Ottawa paramedics say she was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries

Firefighters declared the fire under control at 9:30 p.m. Firefighters say the building was home to approximately 15 people and all of them will be evicted The fire marshal was called in because of the extent of the fire

At 1:29 a.m. Monday, firefighters were called to one on Daly Avenue. No injuries were reported in the fire, but firefighters believe the two residents of the apartment will be evicted
