TORONTO (CP24) –  One woman has died after a two-alarm fire at a high-rise building in the north end of Toronto’s Black Creek neighbourhood early Tuesday morning.

Toronto Fire officials say the fire was first detected by a personal support worker who went to the building, located on Shoreham Drive, near Jane Street and Steeles Avenue, at around 5 a.m. to check on a client.

When firefighters arrived on scene, crews found heavy smoke on the eighth floor of the building.
