One person was rescued and the damages are estimated at $200,000 after a fire on the lower Hamilton Mountain.

Fire crews arrived at the four-storey building at 805 Concession St. at around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. They were notified that an occupant was inside the basement apartment unit where the fire originated in.


“On arrival, crews made their way to the involved apartment and were met with heavy smoke conditions,” according to fire chief David Cunliffe. “Crews entered the apartment to conduct both search and rescue and firefighting operations. The occupant of the apartment was quickly found and removed to the exterior by firefighters.”

The individual was treated on the scene by firefighters and paramedics before being transported to hospital.

Fire officials say the fire was also quickly brought under control before the apartment sustained significant damage, estimated at $200,000.

No other injuries were reported and tenants were able to return to their units.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Ontario fire marshall.
