Westmount fire ravages homes

Six families were forced out of their homes by a fire in Westmount Thursday night.

It spread quickly into the roof of the two-storey building on Argyle Avenue, near Côte-St-Antoine Road.

About 60 firefighters were called to put out the fire.

No one was hurt, although one firefighter was taken to hospital for exhaustion.
