A fire in a Gatineau condo building caused $1 million in damage and has left over 20 people homeless.
Crews responded to a three-storey multi-unit residential building on Rue de Morency, just off La Verendreye near the Gatineau hospital around 3 a.m., Monday.
The roof of the building collapsed, but no injuries were reported.
