Video: Condo unit goes up in flames in Mississauga
Published July 28, 2023 at 7:35 am
A fire broke out at a Mississauga high-rise condo building last night.
Fire crews were called to the building on Mississauga Valley Boulevard in the city centre just before midnight yesterday (July 27), Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services said in a tweet.
When crews arrived flames were showing on the 15th floor and there was heavy smoke on the floor. And flames were impinging on the 16th floor.
“Crews advanced to the fire floor and made an offensive attack to quickly bring the fire under control,” Mississauga Fire said.
Crews also went to the 16th floor and neighbouring units on the 15th to check if the fire had extended to other units.
Fortunately, there were no injuries reported but there was extensive damage to the unit where the fire started.
All residents were permitted back in the high-rise building except for the residents from the main fire unit and the unit directly above the fire.
The cause, circumstances and origin of the fire are currently under investigation.
