An overnight blaze that injured one firefighter has gutted a popular Halal meat shop in Mississauga.

Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services Chief Daniel Ennamorato said that emergency crews were called to the scene of the fire at 1:45 a.m.

The fire engulfed Chop Shop, a meat shop located at 592 Rathburn Rd. W.

“When we got there we saw the fire was through the windows and the roof. It was upgraded to a second alarm fire,” says Ennamorato.

Ennamorato said one firefighter sustained minor injuries after twisting his knee on a ladder. He was transported to hospital and released at 8:00 a.m. this morning.

Ennamorato says the fire was contained within the unit, but that surrounding units suffered smoke and water damage.

Approximately $500,000 worth of damage is estimated to have occurred.

The blaze was under control as of 2:45 a.m.

The cause of the blaze is currently under investigation.

No other injuries were reported in connection with the blaze, and there are currently no road closures in the area.
