A huge five alarm fire broke
out at an auto wrecking yard near Victoria Park Avenue and Danforth
Ave. As I arrived on the scene, emergency vehicles were still
showing up and the smoke plume was towering up over the entire
city. There were dozens of small explosions heard every few minutes
as the fire crews worked to get the blaze under control. I've
never seen so many emergency vehicles in one place before; police,
fire, hazmat, even the ambulance bus was on the the scene.
The explosions were likely caused
by flammable fuels and chemicals. Traffic was snarled and Go
Train services temporarily suspended.
