No injuries were reported after crews responded to a two-alarm fire in a commercial building below downtown apartments on Saturday afternoon.
Toronto police say firefighters were called just before 3 p.m. to 826 Dundas Street West, west of Bathurst.
When crews arrived there was heavy smoke and they say the fire was in the residence above the commercial unit, so firefighters battled the flames inside from the roof.
Toronto Police Officer Laura Brabant told CityNews 680 that two people rushed into the building.
Roads in the area are closed, traffic is not running on Dundas between Palmerston and Manning.
There is no word on what started the fire.
Crews are still on site checking for hot spots, but most of the fire has been brought under control.
