A fire that broke out in the cellar of the Universel restaurant on St-Denis Street closed three blocks and cut power to the area Sunday morning. 

The five-alarm fire in the building near the corner of Cherrier Street crawled up three floors, into the homes above, and forced 10 people out. No one was injured.

A restaurant is on the building's first floors, with apartments occupying the two storeys above it.

The fire started around 6:30 a.m. and spread through the building's pipes, which Montreal Fire Department Operations Chief John Primiani said is not unusual. He added that 120 firefighters were sent to battle the fire.
