Suspicious fire at North York auto shop

TORONTO - Toronto Police have not ruled out the possibility that a fire inside a North York auto shop early Monday is linked to the investigation of a nearby weekend arson.

Officers were called to Quality Used Cars Wholesale at 30 Toro Rd., near Tangiers Rd. and Keele St., around 2:40 a.m.

“Fire was visible out back of the building,” Const. Jenniferit Sidhu said.

Up to eight cars were damaged in the blaze.

“Because of the condition of some of the vehicles, there is the possibility some were damaged prior to the fire,” Sidhu said.

The fire is being treated as suspicious and the investigation is continuing.

Police are looking to see if there is any connection to nearby car fires early Sunday.

“It is being looked at as a possibility, although in the most recent case, the fire was in an industrial area and the weekend fires were in a residential zone,” Sidhu said.

Four vehicles were damaged after three vehicles were set on fire in the Jane St.-Wilson Ave. area in the Sunday incident.

Some of those vehicles were in the driveways of homeowners at the time, police said.

Investigators urged anyone with information to call 416-808-3100.
