PDP #26: Smoke over Bloor Street

It's a quick turnaround today in a city that seems to have dealt with a surprising amount of significant fires over the last week. While on northern walkabout with Randy McDonald on Friday afternoon, April 10th, which among other accomplishments included covering the entire length of Lansdowne Avenue, we both noticed an unusual smoke cloud rising over the skyline once we reached Bloor. It wasn't until later that details of the blaze hit the news - a three-alarm fire at 804 Bloor Street West, about 1.7 kilometers from where today's photo was taken. Thankfully, in comparison to other fires that have ripped through the city recently, the news is not reporting anyone to have been hurt because of this one.

Randy McDonald took his own photos of the smoke plume. Once he updates his own site as such, I will link to his thoughts from here.

UPDATE (04/14/09): Randy has updated. His post and somewhat-alternate-angle photo on the matter can be found here.
