A busy intersection in Toronto’s financial district has been shut down as police investigate a series of blasts and heavy smoke billowing up from underground – caused by a hydro vault fire.
It began around 5pm during evening rush hour and led to police herding crowds of commuters away from the scene – near King and Yonge.
Toronto Fire platoon chief Kevin Shaw said crews are waiting for Toronto Hydro to assess the situation before any further action is taken – and he says that smoke from an electrical fire is dangerous and the public should definately avoid the area.
