Moncton Fire Sends Four To Hospital

The Canadian Red Cross says an early morning fire at a home in Moncton on Monday displaced seven people and sent four to the hospital.

Officials say reports of the blaze on Bonaccord Street blaze came in at around 7 a.m. Officials say the building contained three apartments.

Spokesperson Dan Bedell confirmed in an email to NB News Now that one woman and three children were rushed to the hospital with “undisclosed injuries.

“Canadian Red Cross volunteers have arranged emergency lodging and purchases like meals and clothing for two women from each of two apartments that received smoke or water damage,” he said.

“Similar Red Cross help will be offered if required for five residents of the third apartment where the fire occurred, including the four who were hospitalized.”

There is no word on what caused the fire.
