Downtown construction site closed for arson investigation

A downtown construction site was closed for an arson investigation Thursday morning, Toronto police confirm.

A witness told CityNews he and his fellow construction workers were locked out of the site at Bay and Elm streets and that there were two fires there Wednesday.

Some workers were seen entering the site around 7 a.m., but police said the area being investigated will be off limits until further notice.

The project is the new Research and Learning Tower for Sick Kids Hospital, which broke ground last May.
