6-Alarm Fire at Queen & Bathurst
Firefighters continue to battle a massive six-alarm blaze that is razing shops and apartments in the Queen and Bathurst area this morning. Over 50 fire vehicles have joined the fight. Early reports suggest that at least eight stores have burned, one unit has collapsed, and more structure appears to be on the verge of coming down. No injuries have been reported so far. Street closures in the surrounding area are affecting transit in a significant way (and this is where the TTC's service disruption web page fails miserably by not reporting major surface route delays).
CityTV reports that National Sound, Suspect Video, and Duke's Cycle are amongst the shops affected.
