Yonge Street still closed for fire investigation

The 6 alarm fire that consumed most of the heritage building at Yonge and Gould Streets is still causing a headache for traffic as Yonge Street is still closed for the fire investigation. The Ontario Fire Marshal's office is looking into what caused the fire and will have to demolish the building to do the investigation and Toronto Police 51 Division has made the following announcement.

As a result of an ongoing investigation by the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office and the Toronto Police Service, road closures have been put in place for safety and evidentiary reasons. Until further notice, both sides of Yonge Street are closed to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, from Edward Street Street to just north of Gould Street. Vehicular traffic on Yonge Street is closed between Dundas Street West and Gerrard Street. The west side of Yonge Street, from Dundas Street to Edward Street, is open to pedestrians, who will then be directed west on Edward Street. The east side of Yonge Street, from Dundas Street to just short of Gould Street, will also be open to pedestrians. Victoria Street has since been re−opened.

Besides the loss of an old building with plenty of character everyone seems to miss the old Salad King Restaurant.
