Toronto Fire Crews Battle 3-Alarm Blaze in Yorkville

Crews say sprinklers at 84 Yorkville Avenue weren't working and neither was local hydrant.

Fire crews continue to battle a few hot spots after a massive three-alarm fire at a commercial building in Toronto's downtown Yorkville neighbourhood.

The fire began just after 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Fire crews had knocked down the blaze a short time later, but the fire had penetrated into the walls, making its way from the second floor and through the roof.

No injuries have been reported and there's no word yet on the cost of the damage.

Meanwhile, police say a man who allegedly attacked firefighters on the scene has been arrested.
