Massive Streetsville blaze
A massive fire at a construction site in the Streetsville area of Mississauga forced the evacuation of nearby residents Friday night.
They were bused to a plaza while fire crews battled flames that lit up the sky and gutted a four storey building that was under construction.
After more than two hours of fighting the flames, firefighters said they had no reports of any injuries and the fire was largely contained by 9:30 p.m.
The fire produced towering clouds of smoke and triggered a number of explosions.
Electrical power to dozens of homes was also cut off, but there were no immediate reports of any injuries, and no early word on the cause of the fire.
