Media reports have indicated Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s mother has been hospitalized following a small fire in a downtown Montreal apartment.
According to Radio-Canada and TVA, Margaret Trudeau is being treated for smoke inhalation and there is no danger to her life.
The fire reportedly first broke out on the terrace of a fifth-floor apartment in the building, located on Doctor Penfield and Atwater avenues.
Three families were evacuated from the building following the blaze, which required 70 firefighters to get under control. Damage was limited, however, to the apartment where the fire began.
It is not yet known what caused the fire.
After the news emerged online, Justin Trudeau shared an update on Twitter:
A source also told Global News: “Margaret has sustained minor injuries that are not life-threatening. She is expected to make a full recovery.”
