Queen's Park Fire

An old building at Queen's Park (the Ontario Legislature) was damaged by a fire last night. It's not clear how much was destroyed, but reports suggest that it was a relatively small fire on the roof that was quickly brought under control.

Flickr photographer JL1967 captured the photo above, and has a few more photos of the emergency response (as well as several other photo sets dedicated to documenting Toronto Fire Services).

Not much information beyond this is available, given that most of us are eating turkey and tofurkey with our families this weekend.
