Mississauga fire damages at least 10 townhouse units, sends 2 firefighters to hospital

An early morning townhouse complex fire in Mississauga has slightly injured two firefighters, displaced at least 25 people and damaged at least 10 to 12 units, a fire official says.

Platoon Chief Alan Hills, of Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services, said crews were called at a townhouse fire at 1560 Bloor St., near Havenwood Drive, east of Dixie Road  at 2:13 a.m. on Saturday.

All residents of the units were able to get out safely, he said. 

Hills said the fire is now under control. 

One firefighter suffered heat exhaustion, while the other suffered a leg injury. Both were transported by Peel Regional Paramedic Services to a local hospital.

Hills described the blaze as a “large loss fire” and said an estimate of the damage was not available.
