Toronto's burning.

Recent reports have it as a 7 alarm fire (which includes : 20 pumpers, 7 aerials, 2 squads, 7 district chiefs, 1 platoon, 1 division commander, 1 command vehicle, 2 air supply trucks, 1 hazardous materials).

They say that by the time it's all done an entire city block could be destroyed, but I don't know how they can be confident that's where it'll end.

(FYI - this is just west of the trendy part of Queen St. West, older buildings, nothing too tall).

Right around the corner from my office, too. Glad I'm working at home right now.

One of our young art directors is a competitive cyclist who's sponsored by Duke's Cycle - which has just collapsed in on itself. Sad. Great section of Queen St., that.

Indeed, AG. The smoke's as thick as pigshit down here.

When it was (only) a four alarm fire it was only getting mentioned in the traffic reports due to the street closure.

That's because it has nothing to do with the Leafs.

If it was Mats Sundin's house it would've been out by now.

It must be getting worse - I just heard another two trucks heading down college towards the fire.

Who thinks this is arson, related to the plans to build a Home Despot over the parking lot at Portland and Queen?

Air Supply trucks?

There's got to be at least a half dozen jokes in there, but I can't seem to find them.

(cups hands around mouth) You suck! Get off!

However, I did think about shuffling up there to gawk at the goings-on, but worried about people thinking I was one of those losers that goes to these things just to gawk at the goings-on.

WOM : just stand back a bit and appear to be waiting for a bus or summat - you'll blend right in. Don't forget to gizzah call if you get on camera !

I've already been on camera on Queen Street.

And so have you. Heh.

Any excuse to post that. Any excuse at all.

Erica Ehm used to be reasonably hot.
