Nuns' Island fire sends three to hospital

Montreal Fire Department responds to fire on Nuns' Island.

A kitchen fire is to blame for a four-alarm blaze at an apartment complex on Elgar Street on Nuns' Island Tuesday night.

Close to 100 firefighters responded to the call at the three-storey building.

Two residents were brought to hospital, one for smoke inhalation, the other for an evaluation after she tripped and fell on her young child while trying to escape the smoke.

Neither injury is serious.

A firefighter was also taken to hospital after injuring his hand, according to an Urgences Santé spokesman. 

The fire department estimates damage at $300,000.
