The good news: A week ago, everyone escaped alive from the fire that took out the corner of Broadview and Gerrard.
Today, Danica and I went to see when the streetcar service might return to normal. Looks like we are not too far away. The most severely damaged parts of the building have been removed completely.
The missing portion has a smaller footprint than I expected. I had thought that the 3 storey brick building was all one piece. Looks that way in the “Before” shot, doesn’t it?
But it appears that the corner segment was separate. Good thing! It says a lot for internal firewalls. I wonder what thriving business will be operating in that notch by this time next summer.
