Brewery fire battle continues 11 p.m. update (16 photos, video)

Thursday, February 07, 2013   by: SooToday.com Staff

Fire crews remain on the scene of a fire that broke out this afternoon at the former Northern Breweries location on Bay Street.

Although flames are not immediately evident, thick pungent smoke continues to billow from the building as two pumper trucks dowse the fire.

The brewery, which has been dormant for a number of years, was slated for demolition next month.

SooToday.com will post further details as they become available.

So if this building is going to be demolished next month, why not just do it now?

Anyone who felt the need to remain in the area while this incident took place I hope you feel it was worth it. I can only imagine what cancer causing materials you inhaled waiting to get that perfect picture....good luck with that

I will believe the building will be knocked down only when it actually happens. It all sounds like another Garforth scheme to me!!!
