Smoke billows at scene of 2-alarm Etobicoke fire

A two-alarm fire has broken out at an Etobicoke warehouse on Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters are trying to extinguish flames at the rear of the building on The West Mall.

Nine trucks and nearly three-dozen firefighters are involved in the response. They were called to the scene just before 5 p.m.

The West Mall has been shut down between Dundas Street and Paxman Road as a result, police say.

More to come.
