In Photos: Slaughterhouse Fire Aftermath

This is one jaw dropping photo slideshow.

Photographer and blogTO reader Hamish Grant shared these extremely striking images of the aftermath and cleanup of the fire that destroyed the "New York Pork" slaughterhouse earlier this week.

Grant writes:

"...this afternoon they were loading the fourth of at least 10 long-load dump trucks with the seared and singed carcasses of over 700 pigs that were in the midst of processing at the packing facility when the fire occurred. Scuttlebutt around the site allowed that it was in fact arson, and it was an inside job - not related to the condo community, but a more conventional insurance scam. This will be before the courts so it's unproven but apparently there's already someone under arrest."

Thanks, Hamish, for adding these incredible images to our blogTO Flickr Pool.
