In Photos: Spadina Strip Sizzles
As reported in blogTO's Morning Brew, a fire broke out early this morning tearing through several buildings at the entrance to historic Kensington Market. A friend who was passing by the corner of Baldwin and Spadina at the time (3:30am) told me that, even with 100 firefighters trying to contain the blaze, it seemed to spread rapidly through the roof and attic section the buildings share.
Dwight Drummond and the CityNews crew were there with the camera rolling as the 3 people trapped inside were rescued. It might've been a full twelve hours later when I got to the scene, but there were still plenty of firefighters, trucks and yellow tape. While they were still inspecting for clues, from what I overheard, they didn't suspect arson. Photos after the jump.
