St. Anne’s Church consumed by fire

Emergency crews are currently battling a four-alarm fire at the historic St. Anne’s Church in Toronto. The fire, reported just before 8 a.m., has led to the evacuation of nearby properties for safety.

Firefighters have made significant progress, with the main part of the blaze under control by 9:55 a.m., though they are still tackling residual spot fires.

The fire has disrupted the area, closing Gladstone Avenue between College and Dundas streets and delaying the start of the Do West Fest in Little Portugal.

There are no reported injuries or occupants inside the building. The cause of the fire at St. Anne’s Church, built between 1907 and 1908 and designated a national historic site in 1996, is under investigation.
