CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - The Canadian Red Cross is assisting three tenants of a Charlottetown apartment building after a water pipe burst and caused some flooding early Thursday morning. 

One of the affected tenants at the 29 Burns Ave. apartment heard an unusual noise during the night, but only realized around 4:30 a.m. that a pipe had burst and was causing flooding. 

Two upper-level apartments of the 12-unit building sustained flood damage.

Volunteers with the Canadian Red Cross have arranged emergency lodging and food for all three.
