Crews from the St. John’s Regional Fire Department, RNC and Eastern Health paramedics currently on the scene of an incident at Cowperthwaite Court near the MUN campus in St. John's.
They responded there for a structure fire call and currently have a number of the Newfoundland and Labrador Housing apartment units evacuated and cordoned off with yellow and red tapes.
As well, tarpaulins have been placed around the fences of one of the units and a laneway blocked off as well with bystanders being kept back.

There is no visible smoke or fire, but one window area of the unit does appear to be scorched.
More details will be provided as they become available.
