Nearly two dozen were driven from the Don Mills subway platforms late yesterday when the tunnels filled with acrid black smoke. The TTC released this statement:
“A construction vehicle parked in a maintenance bay just off of the Don Mills line was deliberating set on fire. We will be releasing all evidence to the police in due time.”
Hearing reports that some unidentified individuals at the station pressed back into the smoke to lead the less fortunate to safety, City Hall praised their quick actions and neighbourly attitude, but was quick to point out that rescue work should be left to professionals with the appropriate training and equipment.
