      Multiple people were rushed to hospital early Thursday morning following a 3-alarm fire in Toronto's Kensington Market.

      The blaze began shortly before 2 a.m. at a building located on St. Andrew Street, according to Toronto Fire. That's near Spadina Ave. and Dundas Street.

      12 people were taken to hospital. Two people died from their injuries, while at least 10 were treated for minor smoke inhalation.

      Before firefighters arrived, Fire Captain Mike Eckerman says police pulled a woman out of the building who was unconscious, along with a child.

      There were dozens of firefighters and paramedics on scene. Police blocked off Spadina from Dundas to College as firetrucks, ambulances and an EMS bus took over the street.

      The fire broke out on the second floor where there are rooming house units. Below is the Jang Soo Chon Korean restaurant

      At this point there's no word on what caused the fire or where it began.

        Place is turning into a slum ( maybe has been for a long time). time to raze it and put up a Walmart with condos above it.

        Sirens haven't stopped in Toronto since the latest media bake of the mayor. Linked? Seems so. 30% over-staffing as compared to other cities with similar city planning and building standards.
