The Emergency Department at St. Michael’s Hospital in downtown Toronto was temporarily shut down following a fire Monday evening.
The fire broke out in an elevator shaft of the hospital, Toronto police said.
Crews responded to the hospital at around 6:50 p.m. and were able to extinguish it quickly.
No injuries were reported.
However police said the hospital’s emergency department would be closed until further notice because of the fire.
At around 9 p.m., Unity Health said the fire investigation has concluded and regular operations have resumed at St. Mike’s emergency department.
It’s not yet clear how the fire started.
A stretch of Shuter Street was closed between Bond and Victoria to accommodate emergency crews, but has since reopened as well.
