There are currently 50 firefighters and 12 fire vehicles outside Kurt Browning's Toronto home fighting a fire! (Yes, they had a fire a few years ago.)

Cause is not known and no one is hurt. Flames seen on the roof right now.

Oh, God, this is terrible. I feel so bad for him and his family. Thank God everyone is fine.

Hope they can contain the fire soon. I'm not sure if they can salvage anything inside the house, but at least no one was hurt...

Kurt would be happy to know he is now a former Olympic champion, however.

"The home belongs to former Olympic champion Kurt Browning, police sources told 680News."

Apparently it's a three alarm fire now. Glad that no one was home, but what luck to have a fire again.

The reports said the house was "vacant" - not sure if that meant of just people (good news there) or of all furnishings.

That sucks...

Horrible news. :( The latest:

Toronto Fire North Division Commander Bob O’Hallarn said the fire started when a leaf blower was left unattended in the mansion’s garage. A man had been using it to dry a convertible.

There may have been some people — including children — in the home when the fire started, he said.
No injuries were reported.
Browning, Rodriguez and their two sons, Gabriel and Dillon, are all fine, said Barb McDonald, director of corporate communications for Skate Canada

Kurt was home with Dillon when it started:


Dylan — who turned three last week — and his father were at the home at the time of the blaze, said the CBC's Stephanie Matteis, reporting from the scene. Both were seen leaving the house, and neither was hurt.

No one else was injured, Strapko confirmed.

One radio report was that "the homeowner" was trying to dry the seats of his convertible with a leafblower. Turned it off and leaned it against the car while he went in the house. When he came out again, leafblower and car were on fire. (Want to bet he was using some kind of flammable cleaner/)

Browning lives a couple blocks from me and we could hear the sirens. Glad no one was hurt!

I was kind of hoping this thread title was the name of his new show.
