High winds that blew overnight further fuelled the flames and aerial ladders were called to help bring the blaze under control, CP24 reported.

The building has collapsed, a fire official told 680 News. Crews remain on the scene to deal with hotspots in the bakery.

There were no reported injuries and as a precaution, gas and hydro have been turned off in the building.
