The fire fully engulfed the vintage greystone, which was built in 1901. There was a huge firefighting response, including a helicopter and many firetrucks, ambulances and police vehicles. The CFD's staging area was set up at Sheridan and Lawrence. Initial reports say that no one was found in the building, and we hope that remains true. From daylight photos, it looks as if the rear of the building sustained most of the damage.
