Fire officials continue to investigate the cause of a fire in a Scarborough shop that badly burned a man.
The fire started inside a picture frame store at Midland Avenue and Kingston Road at 10:30 p.m. on Sept 27. The store was closed at the time but the shop’s 57-year-old owner was inside, said Stephan Powell, deputy fire chief.
Fire officials say six shops were affected in the two-storey shopping complex where the frame shop is located. The complex remains closed due to extensive damage.
The damage is estimated at $400,000, said Powell.
