Toronto police say nobody was injured in a late-night fire under the Bathurst St. bridge at Fort York Blvd.

People in the vicinity reported hearing a loud explosion around 11:11 p.m. and then Twitter lit up with photos of orange flames and black smoke billowing out from under the bridge. 

A police spokesperson said the fire was potentially the result of “propane and aerosol cans” but that Toronto Fire would be taking over the investigation. 

The fire was small “with a lot of smoke,” Fire Captain Bill Papakonstantinou said. He added that there was “no evidence of filled tanks that had exploded.”

Roadways have since reopened.
