A high-end Mississauga townhome development burst into flames last night, destroying at least 55 unoccupied homes and leaving a spectacular scene of rubble.
Another fire at the same location in February caused $1 million in losses and damaged six units.
This morning, the devastating remnants of the townhomes resembled Roman ruins – some front facades still standing and piles of brick and blackened beams still smouldering.
Park View Trail construction manager for Dunpar Homes Julien Diciano said the units were worth between $480,000 and $640,000 and owners were scheduled to move in in a few months.
