TORONTO - Two people were slightly injured early Friday when a three-storey building under renovation partially collapsed in east-end Toronto.

The roof and walls caved in on the top floor at about 5 a.m., sending a shower of debris through the floors and to the sidewalk below.

The injuries were not considered life-threatening and a fire official said the two injured people were taken to hospital just as a precaution.

A number of residents adjacent to the damaged building on Danforth Ave. were evacuated safely.

The Ministry of Labour is expected to be called in to determine the cause of the collapse. (CP24,AM640)
