Steak Queen fire

Steak Queen restaurant destroyed by fire

When Toronto restaurants catch on fire, neighbourhoods, at least temporarily, lose their favourite eating and drinking spots. Early this morning, Rexdale's Steak Queen went up in flames.

You've probably heard of this Etobicoke eatery because Rob Ford inadvertently made it famous when a video of him at the restaurant emerged amidst the numerous scandals that plagued his time as mayor.


As CBC News reports, 11 firetrucks and 44 firefighters came to help put out the one-alarm blaze.

Luckily, no one was injured or in the restaurant at the time of the fire. The precise extent of the damage is still unknown.
