WATCH: Fire crews battle 6 alarm blaze

Took hours to bring under control. No injuries reported...

A massive fire that broke out Thursday morning near Dufferin and Eglinton Avenue has been upgraded to a five alarm blaze.

Dozens of fire fighters are battling the fire at a factory that makes foam. Everyone inside is believed to have got out safely.

The fire started in a large industrial building on Fairbank Ave. north of Castlefield Ave. around 8:30 a.m.

The smoke can be seen from the 401.

Fire fighters took a defensive approach pouring water on the blaze from the roof of another building in the area.
