A large fire engulfed a number of new construction homes in Richmond Hill on Monday around 4 pm. According to the York Regional Police, roads have been closed down at Canyon Hill and Gracedale off Yonge Street.
CP24 reported the four homes were destroyed and another four were damaged.Though the neighbouring homes look complete, they are unoccupied. No injuries have been reported.
Other reports place the large blaze at Canyon Hill Avenue. Based on the address and the images of the homes, the effected project looks fairly similar to Canyon Hill Gardens, a 74-unit enclave by North Star Homes, located on Canyon Hill Avenue. This has not yet been confirmed.
Here are some pictures and video of the fire via social media:
