Wilson Heights 3 Alarm Fire

Crazy 5am blaze that was burning out of control when I arrived. It was a three storey building that had been under construction, on and off for years, prior to the fire.

Area residents say it was being turned into a small multi unit apartment building or condo.

You could see the fire from Hwy 427 to the west and the DVP to the east, as it kit up the early morning sky.

I live covering exciting fires like this. Luckily I was only a couple of highway exits away when it started.
