Arson eyed in North York townhouse blaze on Grandravine Dr.

TORONTO - Police and the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office are probing a suspected arson at a North York townhouse.

Toronto Fire crews raced to the home on Grandravine Dr. — in the Jane St.-Finch Ave. W. area — around 4:20 a.m. Tuesday and quickly doused flames.

“It was escalated to a second alarm but firefighters were able to contain the flames to the kitchen,” Capt. Mike Strapko said Tuesday.

He said about 55 firefighters responded to the scene.

“The two occupants of the home managed to make it outside,” Strapko said, adding one person was taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

“And two cats were rescued from inside the home.”

Strapko said the blaze, which caused about $75,000 worth of damage, was deemed suspicious.

“Fire crews saw something out of the ordinary,” Strapko said, unable to elaborate.
