A six alarm fire near Queen and Bathurst


There is already quite a lot of buzz around the huge fire that basically incinerated a whole block in downtown Toronto. I haven’t heard if anybody was hurt during the massive fire but I sure hope not. I am sure I’ll learn more about it on the news today as I saw two helicopters flying over the area for quite a while. According to blogTO,

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. […]CityTV reports that National Sound, Suspect Video, and Duke’s Cycle are amongst the shops affected.

Anyways, for those of you out there curious as to what a “six alarm fire” really means, go check out the explanation: How big is a 10-alarm fire?. Here are some pictures of the even from the condo… You can see much closer pictures on blogTO. Let me know if you have more news, photos, etc.
