TORONTO – A Toronto fire captain badly hurt while fighting a blaze early Saturday remains in the intensive care unit.
District Chief Stephen Powell says it will be a few days before they know whether his condition will stabilize.
Toronto Fire Services also says a colleague who broke a leg in the incident has been released.
The pair were trying to douse a fire at an abandoned downtown building near Jarvis and Shuter streets when they fell three storeys from the roof.
Chief Matthew Pegg described the captain as a well respected veteran with over 30 years experience at the department.
Pegg said the men were working in difficult conditions, with low visibility and thick smoke.
