Montreal firefighters have managed to get a three-alarm fire under control on Ste-Catherine Street Saturday afternoon, just east of the Beaudry Metro station.

The Metro station had been closed temporarily but it has since reopened. A section of Ste-Catherine Street had been closed near the Visitation Street intersection.

Operations chief Sandra Lisi said the fire started on the building's third floor and worked its way up to the roof. She was unable to say if anybody was inside at the time.

"It is a three-storey building, attached on both sides by the same type of building," she said.

"The first floor is a commercial space. The second and third floor are residential."

She said nobody was injured. There was one resident on the third floor who got out safely. The damage was isolated to the third floor and roof, she said, and nobody else was living in the building.
