    THIS is why I don’t live in a highrise.

    • No one died. Also, house fires are a lot more dangerous and common. Modern high-rises are made of concrete. Homes are still often constructed of wood which allows the fire to spread more easily. Fires like this in tall modern high rises are pretty rare.

  2. I hope everyone will be fine.

  3. Wow that must have been terrifying. Hope everyone is ok and taken care of

  4. That styrofoam and acrylic exterior stucco is a factor im sure !!!! Alot of appartments are coverd in the facelift !!!!

    Whatever they sided that apartment with sure wasn’t very fire retardant. Bad building. That shouldn’t be able to happen with modern technology today.

    Luckily no one perished!

  9. No casualties. Something tells me they were already very prepared for an event like this.

  10. Huh. And it didn’t collapse.

  14. Condos are crappy places to live, I dont know why anyone would want to live in a Condo in Toronto. They are certainly not worth what they are asking right now.

    Looks like the ol’ cigarette on the patio, then climbed up the side of the building. Yup. That’s it. Case closed. Solved by a moron on the other side of the globe.

  16. That looks deadly. I’m sure there were casualties.

    What was it made out of??..

      My thoughts exactly. The woman crying is heart-wrenching. Terrible time to lose your home. Firefighters must be commended if nobody was killed.

    How does a building facade burn like that?

  19. What!!!! You mean their hospitals are not being over run with a second wave of COVID patients.
