Queen Street W fire

There was a major fire just east of Bathurst and Queen Street W early yesterday.

Buildings were burned to the ground, businesses are closed, residents left homeless and Queen Street W is closed. Thankfully no one was seriously injured. They have yet to determine the cause.

KC and I took a walk over there this afternoon (about 15 minutes east of us). It was very sad to see the destruction of these old historic buildings.

There were lots of people lining the north side of the street (including me with my phone) taking pictures.
