Fire on Whyte Ave

It seems like an apartment above the Cut 'N Curl near the corner of Whyte Ave and 99th Street caught on fire early this morning. I heard sirens around 4am and thought nothing of it until my friend Natasha e-mailed me and said the fire had also affected Langano Skies, an Ethiopian restaurant next door.

Also this morning, I had been trying to call Empress Bakery to order some French bread for today but was not receiving any answer. So Sam and I walked by to see what we could see. This was at about 12:15pm today. Needless to say, Sam was THRILLED to see firetrucks and firefighters in action. Traffic was a mess since half the block is closed off. And it looks like all the businesses from the Coin Laundry on the corner through to K&K Foods were closed. Hopefully they can re-open soon...

Getting to see the firefighters spraying water (or chemical stuff? I don't know) on the fire.

You can't see a lot of damage but I'm sure it isn't pretty inside. Hopefully no one was hurt.
