Heavy smoke billows from a fire at a three-unit building on Whissell Street in the Flour Mill Tuesday night.

Seven people were displaced after what’s believed to be an electrical fire at a three-unit apartment building on Whissell Avenue in the Flour Mill Tuesday night.

Fire crews were called out to the scene shortly after 8 p.m. 

Greater Sudbury Deputy Fire Chief Jesse Oshell said there were no injuries to either the tenants or firefighters as a result of the blaze, which has caused fire, smoke and water damage estimated at around $100,000.

The fire is not considered suspicious in nature.

Firefighters worked with the Red Cross and victims’ services to ensure the tenants had somewhere to go.

“Unfortunately the building is going to be in need of repair and remediation,” Oshell said, adding that power has been cut to the building. “That will take time.”
