6-alarm fire in Kensington Market

Three firefighters were injured while battling a massive blaze that gutted a computer store near Bathurst and College Sts. late Sunday night. Emergency crews were called to the scene around 11:15 p.m. for a fire affecting a Canada Computers store and six apartment units at 368 College St.

That was my favourite computer store that burned down, Canada Computers. I hope they're able to rebuild soon in the same area, what a shame, I wonder what will happen to the workers who have no job to go to now.

Not to worry, Rich... Canada Computers has many locations... the staff will be spread around.
