A fire at a Brampton apartment building that sent seven people to hospital was deliberately set, Peel police said.
The fire began on the eighth floor of 5 Kings Cross Rd., near Clark Boulevard and Central Park Drive, around 4:14 a.m. on Saturday. Investigators believe that the fire started in a couch that was in the hallway.
Seven people were treated for smoke inhalation, and a number of families have been displaced from their homes.
The cost of the damage is $100,000.
Witnesses and anyone with information are asked to contact police.
