Toronto City Hall evacuated after fire breaks out
Two city hall employees had to be taken to hospital as a result of injuries sustained from the fire.

Toronto City Hall was evacuated this afternoon after a fire broke out in of the building’s electrical rooms.

The fire broke out at around 1:45 p.m. It appears to have been caused by a hydro worker who accidentally knocked a ladder onto the room’s grounding bar, short circuiting it in the process.

The Toronto Star‘s Daniel Dale shared photos of the fire on his Twitter account. 

The blaze was quickly extinguished by firefighters. However, two city hall employees had to be taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

There’s no word yet on when city hall employees will be allowed to get back in the building. [via Toronto Star]
