3-alarm fire guts Leslieville home, partly destroys neighbouring property

Toronto fire is investigating a three-alarm blaze that gutted one home and partially destroyed another in Leslieville during the early morning hours on Tuesday. 

Shortly before 2:30 a.m., crews responded to a report of a fire burning inside a home on Ashdale Avenue, in the areas of Dundas Street E. and Coxwell Avenue. 

The fire eventually spread to a neighbouring semi-detached house, said Toronto fire Capt. Adrian Ratushniak.

One person was treated on scene for minor smoke inhalation, according to paramedics. 

The blaze was under control by about 4 a.m. As daylight breaks, investigators will begin their probe into how the fire started. 

In all, it took about 90 minutes to get the fire under control. (Tony Smyth/CBC)
