Ten people have been transported to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation, following a fire at an apartment building near Dufferin and Eglinton.

Of those 10, three people are considered to be in serious condition, however Toronto EMS says all are expected to survive.

The fire at the low rise apartment building at 365 Westmount Avenue broke out on the second floor, just after 4 o'clock on Monday afternoon.

Toronto Fire Captain David Eckerman says when they arrived on scene, they found 8 people hanging from windows on the 3rd floor at the back of the building trying to get important fresh air.

They were all rescued by firefighters on ladder trucks.

The fire was put out quickly and appears to be contained to just the second floor of the building.

There's no word yet on how it started.

    LOL....I thought that was Rob Fords campaign vehicle impounded at first?
    Wonder if the old boy is getting his stuff through the fence right now?

    At least it didn't happen in a white neighbourhood, though. So there's that to be thankful for.

      @Alex I would suggest that hitting the report button on Dean for this comment is appropriate.

    Congratulations! For taking an apartment fire that injured ten people and caused an unknown amount of damage to an unknown number of people's homes, and turning it into an opportunity to mock Rob Ford, you have qualified as a finalist in the RFAS Samaritan of the Year grand prize draw!

    Even more good news: If nobody else takes the opportunity to make Ford-related jokes at the expense of at least one family's personal misfortune before the October election, you will win by default! Shockingly, very few people are willing to be the kind of gentle-hearted soul we're looking for.

    Thanks again for taking the time to participate in the RFAS's grand goal of making sure everyone knows that "Even when it's not about Rob Ford, it's about Rob Ford!"
