Princess Street Fire Kingston 2013

Princess St. fire in Kingston, Dec. 2013

In December 2013 there was a huge fire on Princess Street in Kingston Ontario. The fire was a building that was under construction for student housing that went up in flames. It caught fire rather quickly because it was made almost entirely out of wood.

This fire also made national news when the crane operator had to be rescued by an emergency helicopter from the Trenton Military base.

The Ministry of Labour has now laid charges, 22 in total, in relation to the fire.

Charges were laid against company and individuals.
