He said as many as 50 people were evacuated and 11 people required hospitalization for smoke inhalation. The four victims in critical condition were 7, 13, 20 and 30, but it wasn't immediately known if they were all from one family, the report said.
The fire was extinguished quickly but smoke damage was extensive, Robillard said.
The fire came a day after a condominium under construction in the Rosemont district began burning and flames spread to five other buildings. No injuries were reported but 75 people were forced from their homes.
That fire's origin is considered suspicious, investigators told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
