A building on Parkdale avenue sustained $5,000 of external damage after a dumpster fire in an open parking garage on Friday.

Ottawa Fire received a call at 9:43 Friday night for 395 Parkdale Ave. and when they arrived, crews found a fully involved dumpster and a lot of smoke going into the highrise building from the parking garage.

Residents of the building were evacuated from the building but were allowed back as soon as the building was properly ventilated.

There were no injuries.
