Hamilton Fire Destroys Two Homes

I caught this one as I was about to head home. The call came in about 6:30am for smoke in the area of John St N and Picton St E in Hamilton.

Smoke detectors were sounding when crews arrived. The fired spread quickly from the basement to the roof and then through the fire wall into the other side of this semi-detached house.

No injuries were reported but a nearby school will be closed for at least the morning due to heavy smoke in the area.

Cop Crashes Cruiser

A Sargent from 55 Division had a bit of a nasty run in with a TTC bus last night. It happened at Danforth and Main. Non-life threatening injuries but she'll be off work for a while. Ouch!

5 Fire Alarm

This was a nasty fire! It started out small but within ten minutes of arriving I was already thinking it was going to get right out of hand. It went to a 5 Alarm. They pulled all crews out of the building and it spread until you could see flames out of almost every window.

Two Shootings After Quiet Spell

The overnight shift had been quiet but that ended last night. By midnight I was dealing with a shooting at a downtown hotel. Then a second shooting on St. Clair West closed off the shift. This after three quiet nights.

In the news business Toronto never disappoints.
