‘Painstaking’ investigation begins after massive Streetsville fire

The Mississauga Fire Brigade will launch a “scrupulous” investigation today after an explosion and a massive fire engulfed a construction site near a senior residence and a high school in Streetsville on Friday night, the city’s fire chief said.

Power was restored for 1,100 residents near Tannery St. and Joymar Dr about 17 hours after a large “wind-powered” fire erupted around 7pm on Friday, forcing the evacuation of some residents of the area for several hours , according to Mississauga, Chief Tim Beckett.

Sixty firefighters and a number of support units arrived after receiving calls for an explosion and a fire near a four-story, wooden-frame building that was built as part of a townhouse development. Initially it was reported that the site was part of the second phase of the Credit River Retirement Residence. At around 9.45 am the mayor of the Mississauga Bonnie Crombie told the media that the fire had been extinguished, but the site had collapsed completely.

One fireman got a slight hand damage after he had slipped onto the ice, said the fire service commander.

“Last night we had to interrupt the power for much of the Streetsville area,” said Beckett on Saturday afternoon. “We had some concerns about collapse and the damage this could cause to the power wires and crews working in the area,” he said.

Peel police said that electricity in the area around Streetsville had been restored around 1.30 pm. on Saturday.

Beckett said there was some concern that the remaining parts of the structure could “collapse at any time.” He said that heavy equipment will be used to overthrow those pieces.

The police said that a few homes had been evacuated directly across the fire, but residents were released to go home at 10:30. Friday.

Beckett said it is unclear how bad the damage is, but it costs a “large sum of money.”

Peel police said that Tannery St., of Dr. Joymar. to Broadway St., will be closed to pedestrians and motorized traffic as the firefighter investigates.

In a tweet on Saturday afternoon, the school of the shell district declared that Streetsville Secondary School, located near the scene of the fire, was not affected by the fire.

“Permits are unaffected, @OFSSA volleyball will continue as planned this weekend, and the school will be open for staff and students on Monday.”

Gordi Birsbin, a nearby resident, told the star on Friday that they had several fireballs saw and heard a huge explosion that shook her house and several smaller ones.
