Toronto Fire has informed me that the fault in the electrical system has been corrected. ESA has given authorization for reconnection, which should start imminently. Barring any complications, the heat risers will be charged for floors 1-15 one-by-one over the next 6 to 8 hours. Upon completion, the water system will be able to be recharged and restored in as little as 30 minutes. If everything proceeds well, the building should be back to normal sometime between 8 pm and 10 pm tonight. Toronto Fire will continue to monitor and maintain a fire watch until the restored systems are all verified and life safety systems cleared.
