There was a huge fire here in Toronto yesterday. I believe it might even still be burning!
An auto wrecking yard, not all that far from here, ended up having a huge fire. Police are investigating as to whether it was arson or not as kids were seen in the area before the fire broke out.
It’s a huge auto wrecking yard full of cars and tires. When it caught on fire there was a huge explosion and then the city filled with black smoke. Toronto’s huge, but this fire was big enough to contaminate the air and skies above the city.
I hope the fires out by sometime later today, but since tires are likely on fire I expect it will take longer. Luckily the auto wrecking yard isn’t near any water ways.
Oh Chris works in the OR recovery area and they put the whole staff on standby – something we call code orange – just in case toxic fumes from the fire started to affect people or something worse happened.
