Firefighters responded to reports of smoke at 181 Henderson Ave.
On Friday, March 2, an overnight fire was reported at 181 Henderson Ave., a student populated residence across from the University of Ottawa that displaced 12 people, according to the CBC.
Ottawa firefighters were called to the scene after hearing reports of smoke coming from the third floor of the building just before 3 a.m. No injuries have been reported.
According to Daniel Birru, a resident at 181 Henderson Ave., Smart Living Property, the company that owns the building arranged for housing for the displaced residents. They have been relocated to three buildings, one in Sandy Hill, the other in Vanier, and the third in Rockcliffe for the next two months as reparations take place.
The cause of the fire is still unknown.
