Capital Hall Condos Fire - Update


Earlier today a fire started in what appears to be a dumpster on the ground level outside Capital Hall Condos being built by Ashcroft Homes. Reports indicate that the fire spread up a garbage chute which ran up the side of the building. It was originally set to open in September, which the developer is going to still try to be ready for. Between 40 and 50 firefighters and 16 to 18 trucks responded to the 3-alarm blaze. In will take some time to time to determine the cause and expected timeline moving forward, however the damage at this time looks much worse that it could be - mainly exterior cladding and windows.
