A woman believed to be about 70 years old is in critical condition after a fire in a high-rise apartment building in west-end Toronto.

The blaze erupted at about 11:30 a.m. in a unit on the 25th floor (at 100 High Park Avenue near Keele and Bloor).

Fire Chief Bill Stewart says the apartment was “fully involved” when firefighters arrived on the scene.


He says the woman was found without vital signs but was revived by paramedics on the way to St. Joseph’s Health Centre.

The woman’s name has not yet been released and there’s no indication yet as to the cause of the fire.
