Five Alarm Fire at an Auto Wrecking Yard

Toronto, Ontario - Sept. 20, 2007

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.
