Roughly 100 firefighters on scene as five-alarm fire rages through North York high-rise
(The Star Movies)

A five-alarm fire ravaged a highrise near Jane Street and Steeles Avenue West in North York on Friday evening, injuring one and forcing hundreds out of the building. Flames and smoke seeped out of the 15-storey building, located at 235 Gosford Blvd. and home to around 700 residents, for hours on Friday as roughly 100 firefighters took turns attempting to tame the blaze. Nearly two dozen fire trucks were at the scene. Toronto Fire Chief Matthew Pegg told reporters outside the building that the fire “escalated very quickly” and that the fire crews “encountered very significant fires on multiple floors and corresponding heavy smoke,” preventing them from geting the residents out quickly. Six residents were rescued and removed by firefighters, with one transported to hospital in “stable condition,” Pegg said. Roads in the area were closed and the TTC sent roughly half a dozen shelter buses for the evacuees. Ted Fraser is a breaking news reporter, working out of the Star’s radio room in Toronto.
