Firefighters were still on the scene this morning of a three alarm fire that officials say started in the basement of a 100-year-old rowhouse in Toronto’s west end.
More than 70 firefighters in 18 trucks were called to the scene in the Junction neighbourhood on Sunday night, and they battled the blaze into the early morning hours.
The flames eventually spread upwards to the attic and four homes were damaged, two of them extensively; the roof of the home where the fire originated fell in.
One man was reportedly treated for smoke inhalation.
Because damage is estimated at over $500,000, the Ontario Fire Marshal will investigate. However, officials say the fire does not appear to be suspicious.
