A mattress fire prompted crews to evacuate a motel in Scarborough early Saturday morning.
It happened around 7:30 a.m. at the Idlewood Inn — which also serves as a student residence — on Kingston Road, east of Galloway.
The occupants took shelter on a TTC bus while firefighters doused the flames.
The extent of the damage is not yet known.
Meanwhile, Mississauga crews are investigating a townhouse fire on Goreway Drive, south of Steeles Avenue East, which happened not long before.
One person was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
