Toronto to Orangeville - Fires

I went to two fires overnight. The Orangeville fire was better. Mutual aid was called from 3 surrounding departments and damage will be in the millions after a large fire on historic Broadway Ave. I could see the smoke from about 5km outside of town. The Chief was very nice and even gave us a clip.

We also had a two alarm fire in the city earlier. This one was on Dovercourt near Queen. It looks like a porch fire got out of hand. Officers from 14 division helped residents escape the blaze. TFD made quick work of this one. Damage is extensive with no word on cause.

That was my quiet Sunday night.

Pork on the Road - Pig in the City

Just when I thought the night was almost over. A truck full of pigs rolled over on the 427 ramp to the Gardiner. It will be closed for hours. The trucks were on the way to slaughter. Now they get to live for a few more hours and make a national television debut on CBC. For pigs life doesn't get much better. Living the dream baby!
