UPDATE: Man suffers serious injuries in Scarborough fire

It happened at an apartment building near O'Connor Dr. and Victoria Park

A man in his 60's suffered critical injuries Wednesday night after a fire at an apartment building in Scarborough.

The fire was contained to a first-floor unit in the building on Wakunda Place, near O'Connor Drive and Victoria Park. The call came in around 10 p.m.

Fire officials say the man didn't have a pulse when he was first pulled out, but was revived by paramedics. Toronto police later updated his condition saying he is at Sunnybrook with life-threatening injuries.

Because of smoke which spread to the second and third floors, the building was evacuated, but everyone was allowed to return about an hour later.
