Bunch of coldstore fires happening! We had one 2 nights ago and it was at the former Tip Top ice cream factory which was abandon and ready to be torn down. It happened at 11:45pm on Tuesday and we live not far from the corner... WE didn't hear or notice any thing.

The smoke plume is largely dimished now. They must be doing a good job down there!

Yea I saw the fire engines and police officers hanging about the Tip Top factory the following morning on my way to work.

ANd yea Tony, that DOES look like a tornado!  Is that from the back of your own place?  Pretty close for comfort.
