Your morning news roundup for Friday September 21st, 2007:

A 5-alarm fire that caused all sorts of mayhem (not to mention air pollution) near Victoria Park and Danforth may have been deliberately set.

On a related note, it turns out that some fire trucks are too heavy for legal travel on 400-series highways. Looks like some Ontario laws need to be rewritten.

A top Toronto financial bureaucrat is warning that property taxes could shoot up by over 20% if we don't come up with plans to introduce other taxes. Is it fear-mongering or real threat?

Four teens have been arrested in connection with an alleged sexual assault at C.W. Jeffreys high school. It must be a tough time to be a student at this school.

Two girls have been rescued on Georgian Bay after spending 50h adrift in a rubber dinghy. Lucky. Really lucky.
