Fire under control at west-end Toronto scrap yard

TORONTO - Residents of a west-end Toronto neighbourhood are being asked to keep their windows closed following a fire at a metal scrap yard.

TORONTO - Residents of a west-end Toronto neighbourhood are being asked to keep their windows closed following a fire at a metal scrap yard.

The three-alarm blaze erupted just before 8 a.m. and sent thick clouds of grey smoke over the area (at Jane and Dundas).

There were no injuries, but one firefighter was treated at the scene for suspected smoke inhalation.

Fire officials say officials from the Environment Ministry will be on the scene to check the run-off for any possible toxins.

No word yet on what caused the fire at the yard, which contains metal, rubber, plastics and other potentially hazardous material.

A nearby school (Runnymede Collegiate) was temporarily closed at the height of the fire because of smoke, which also caused minor delays on a nearby GO Train line.
