Moncton fire platoon Chief Paul Bruens told Global News that initial reports indicated there were three people trapped in the building. But when crews arrived, they were able to confirm that everyone was out of the building.

Four people were treated for “undisclosed injuries,” with one case being serious in nature.

Bruens said crews were on the scene for about two and a half hours.
