An 18-month-old-baby is in a Montreal hospital after being found alone in an apartment that was on fire. The child is expected to survive after suffering smoke inhalation, says doctors.
A woman was arrested who is believed to have been the child’s babysitter. Police say that eight officers were also bothered by the smoke, with four being taken to hospital.
Bystanders called police about the fire. Police had to smash down doors to get about 40 people safely out of the building.
