A massive fire at the same Toronto Community Housing building in September, 2010, forced the evacuation of about 1,700 residents, many of whom had special needs.

The 2010 fire started after a discarded cigarette landed on a 24th floor balcony filled with papers and other items. Neighbours said the unit was occupied by a hoarder.
