Multiple people homeless after Kensington Market fire

Multiple people are homeless this morning after a three-alarm fire in Kensington Market early Thursday morning.

The fire started on the second-floor balcony of a semi-detached house on Oxford Street at around 4:30 a.m.

The back of the house, split into at least five separate units, was destroyed, CBC videographer Tony Smyth reported from the scene.

A Toronto Transit Commission bus was brought in for shelter.

No injuries were reported.
