Three firefighters and one police officer suffered minor injuries while fighting a five-alarm fire in Saint-Hubert Monday evening.
Longueuil emergency services received a call about the fire at a 24-unit apartment building on Élie Street at 6:15 p.m.
The fire started in the kitchen of a first-floor unit and the flames quickly engulfed the three-storey building.
