We awoke this morning to reports on the radio of a huge fire at Yonge and Gould in Toronto’s downtown. This is the same building that was in the news last spring when a chunk of the facade fell to the sidewalk along Gould St., forcing the shut-down the popular Thai lunch spot, Salad King. From the photo in the Star, it looks like the HMV next door could be damaged as well.
There are apparently 33 firetrucks down there and all the streets surrounding the fire are closed off. I heard on the radio that two fire-fighters are being treated for injuries suffered while fighting the fire. I sure hope those guys are OK.
