Fire On The Drive

There was quite a fire on the Drive early this morning.  I was up watching cricket at about two when twitter started mentioning a fire.  It quickly became clear it was the apartment building at the southwest corner of Commercial & Kitchener, where an old friend lives.

As the night went on, it seemed to be more of a smoke event than a raging fire; however, today we learn that twenty people are now homeless due to fire and water damage including, presumably, our friend.

There is a lot of retail on the ground floor and I wonder how they have been affected?  I’ll check tomorrow and report in the next Changes on The Drive column on Friday.
