Fire Breaks Out at Pearson International Airport

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Monday, March 18, 2019

Several people were treated for what police described as “smoke-related injuries” after a fire at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport Terminal 1 on Sunday night.

Operations are back to normal but last night all U.S. flights departing from Terminal 1 were canceled. Delays are still expected.

Anyone traveling to the United States from Pearson is encouraged to contact their airlines.

The fire broke out near a security checkpoint.

There is no word on what caused the fire but Peel Regional Police say that they do not believe the fire to be suspicious.
An investigation is underway.

Measuring over 346,000 square meters, Terminal 1 is the largest airport terminal in Canada and the 12th largest in the world by floor space.
