A high school in Toronto has partially collapsed, with neighbouring buildings having to be evacuated due to a raging fire broke out for the second day in a row at the building.

The fire at York Memorial Collegiate Institute, a public secondary school located at 2690 Eglinton Avenue West, is now being described as a six alarm fire.

“Our principal focus now in collaboration with the police is making sure that we’re implementing the necessary evacuations out of an abundance of caution to keep people safe,” Toronto Fire Chief Matthew Pegg said.

Pegg advised anyone in the path of the smoke to move to another area. TTC buses have been brought into the area to shelter people who need to leave their homes.
