About 25 residents were evacuated from the triplex and a neighbouring building.
One person was taken to the hospital with burns to his hands and feet but his life is not in danger.
A fireman also suffered a minor injury to the shoulder while battling the fire.
Several apartments did not have functioning fire alarms.
