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.
