Delays continue this morning at Toronto Pearson Airport following a fire in Terminal 1 on Sunday evening.

According to Peel Police, a few patients were treated by Peel Paramedics for smoke related injuries, but no major injuries were reported.

Thousands of travellers were evacuated from the affected area on Sunday as crews worked to extinguish the fire, which was done successfully, but there was a “significant amount of water and smoke,” police said.

Pearson cancelled all flights scheduled to depart to the US from the affected terminal at one point, although departures have since resumed.

Because of the cancellations and delays on Sunday, Pearson is warning US passengers to check their flight status today, as some flights continue to be affected.

Both Terminals 1 and 3 are operating normally.
