Emergency services have closed Inglis Street between Victoria and Tower Roads to allow firefighters to more effectively combat the fire.
Twenty-five tenants escaped the fire and were able to take refuge in a municipal bus that went there.
The Halifax fire department estimates that it will take several hours to spread the flames. He asks motorists to avoid the area.
