Toronto police and fire officials are investigating a two-alarm fire and a stabbing in the city’s downtown core.
Around 4 a.m. Thursday, fire crews responded to an alarm call at a highrise on Dundas Street East near Bond Street.
When they arrived, firefighters found a man suffering from what appeared to be stab wounds in the hallway of the third floor.
Shortly after that, they saw smoke and went up to the eighth floor, where they located a fully-engulfed fire.
Flames were seen coming from a balcony on the west side.
The fire chief said the person transported to hospital was stabbed. Later, police said the man had a stab wound to his hand and is expected to survive.
It is not yet known if the two incidents are connected.
The fire has since been knocked down.
