A fire fighter was injured on Thursday night as crews battled a 3-alarm blaze in Toronto’s east end.

According to Toronto Fire Services, a two-storey townhouse on Queen Street East and Sumach Street had visible heavy smoke and flames upon arrival around 8:30 pm.

The fire was initially a 2-alarm blaze, but was later upgraded to a 3rd alarm. Several firetrucks were on the scene, and streets surrounding the fire were closed for the evening.

One firefighter sustained a leg injury, but no other injuries were reported.

Fire chief Matthew Pegg said the fire was under control just before midnight, and indicated that investigators would be on the scene overnight.
