International flights holding at gates after fire at Toronto’s Pearson airport

TORONTO — International flights are on hold at Canada’s busiest airport after a fire.

A few smoke-related injuries were reported after the fire at Terminal 1 on Sunday evening.

One woman was taken to hospital in stable condition, while another was treated at the scene.

Peel Regional Police say the blaze has been extinguished, although there’s still significant amounts of water and smoke in the terminal.

The airport says passengers were evacuated from the affected area, and all international and U.S. aircraft are “holding at their gates.”

It’s urging passengers to check their flight status before coming to the airport.

There’s no word yet on what caused the fire. Crews are working to clean up the damage.
