About 100 people were forced out of their 55 Lakeshore Rd. building, late Saturday night in Pointe Claire, when a fire broke out in a third floor apartment.
While most made it out of the building on their own accord, local firefighters rescued three people, who were trapped by the smoke, from their balconies.
The fire was contained to the third floor apartment.
Residents were allowed back into the building by early Sunday morning.
