A fire broke out early this morning on the 21st floor of an apartment complex in Mississauga, causing many residents to evacuate their units.

According to a statement released by Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services, the fire began at 4055 Parkside Village Drive around 3 a.m. on the 21st floor of the 34-storey building.

All residents on the floor affected by the fire have been asked to leave their units temporarily. It is unclear how many of the building’s 600 apartment units were impacted by the fire.

Fire crews have not indicated whether any residents suffered serious injuries or were transported to the hospital.

“The management company will be contacting residents by email or phone to advise when they can return to their units,” the statement read.

The cause of the fire, including the damage to the building and individual units, is still under investigation.

Residents who have questions about returning to their units or want updates on the situation are asked to call 905-791-7800 or the management company of the building where they live.

Anyone who does not have a place to stay for the time being is advised to call their insurance provider. However, those without insurance can register with Region of Peel Human Services at the Mississauga Valley Community Centre, located at 1275  Mississauga Valley Boulevard.
