Power restored after transformer fire at St. Clair condo

Toronto Hydro restored power to about 9,000 residents east of Forest Hill after a transformer fire in a historic condo building.

The Imperial Plaza condos on St. Clair Avenue West, near Avenue Road, were evacuated around noon Wednesday after a fire started in the basement transformer room. There are no reports of any injuries.

Toronto Hydro said underground cables caught fire and caused the outage.

Power was restored around 3 p.m.
