A man had to be rushed to hospital for smoke inhalation following an apartment fire on Dufferin Street.

Toronto Fire tells Newstalk 1010 that the blaze broke out in an apartment on the 6th floor at 300 Dufferin Street at around 6:45a.m. Tuesday.  Within minutes the fire was under control, but one male resident had to be taken to hospital for smoke inhalation.  He was said to be in serious but non life-threatening condition.

Residents in the building were told to shelter in place, meaning no evacuation was necessary.

The cause of the fire was not immediately clear.

    but, despite union's scary ads, they aren't saying low long it took to get there.

    I resent their union's scare tactics with their misleading ads. Apparently Toronto has more firefighters per capita than New York. With all the modern technology for detection we fortunately have fewer fires.

    It's about time we reduce the fire dept. and transfer some of those funds to increased paremedics as there's no need to send fire trucks for health calls.

    This is all part of the gravy train which unfortunately, Ford didn't have the guts to address when their contract came up.
