queen street's on fire

a break in the regular fashion postings to share some sad news of the queen west fire today. it was heartbreaking to walk down my favourite street and see a whole block devastated by fire. luckily no one was hurt but my heart when out to all the businesses like suspect video and preloved that were virtually destroyed by fire and all the people who lost their apartments. it's so sad to think that i'll never walk down that section of the road and see those historic storefronts again. it really is a piece of toronto that was lost. i went by today around 12pm and again around 4 and the fire crews were still pumping huge amounts of water on the fire that started around 5 in the morning. buildings had collapsed and some were just shells of their former selves. it was all so unbelievable.
