Five people displaced in Charlottetown apartment fire

Five people have been displaced as firefighters battle a fire at a 4-unit apartment building on University Avenue in Charlottetown.

All the residents made it out safely and nobody was injured, said Charlottetown Fire Chief Randy MacDonald. 

Members of the Canadian Red Cross were on scene to offer assistance.

The building is located at 282 University Ave.

Firefighters responded to the call at 1:28 p.m., MacDonald said.

"Crews arrived on scene and with police assistance helped to evacuate the building," he said.

It's too early to determine the cause of the fire, MacDonald said, but the fire inspector is investigating.
