Avida, Etobicoke company gutted by fire

TORONTO - A three-alarm fire destroyed a commercial building in Etobicoke early Tuesday.

The blaze erupted at 72 Six Point Rd., near Islington Ave., around 4:30 a.m. and when Toronto Fire crews arrived at the scene the building was fully engulfed in flames.

About 80 firefighters and 21 fire trucks were called in to battle the stubborn blaze.

By the time the flames were under control the roof had collapsed and the building was gutted.

The building housed Avida, a digital signage company.

It’s believed nobody was inside the business when the fire broke out and no injuries were reported.

Area residents were advised to close their windows to keep the smoke out of their homes.

It was not immediately clear what sparked the blaze.
