Saturday morning blaze caused by outdoor fire, officials say
Toronto Fire Services say they received a call at 6:59 a.m. regarding the blaze near Dupont Street and Christie Street, adding it was brought under control at 9:45 a.m.
Christie Street was closed from Dupont Street to Barton Avenue, but has since reopened.
Officials say power has been restored to all buildings, except for two properties in the area.
Toronto Fire Services also says the Ontario Fire Marshal is not investigating because they've determined the blaze was caused by an outdoor fire.
By law, you need a permit to have an outdoor fire in Toronto, unless it's for food preparation.
