Crews called to two alarm fire at commercial building downtown

There are no reported injuries after crews responded to a two-alarm fire at a commercial building below apartments downtown on Saturday afternoon.

Toronto police say fire crews were called just before 3 p.m. to 826 Dundas Street West, west of Bathurst.

When crews arrived, there was heavy smoke and they say the fire was in the residence above the commercial unit, so firefighters battled the flames in the interior from the roof.

Toronto Police Constable Laura Brabant tells CityNews 680 that two people reportedly ran into the building, but no officials have located individuals inside the building.

Roads in the area were also blocked off as crews fought the fire. At one point, no vehicles were getting through on Dundas between Palmerston Avenue and Manning Avenue.

Crews are still on scene checking for hotspots, but the main portion of the fire has been knocked down.
