Peeler aficionados and mammary augmentation connoisseurs are breathing a sigh of relief today as news returns on this morning’s fire at Toronto’s legendary Brass Rail. Traffic was snarled and redirected as police closed Yonge Street from Isabella to Bloor to battle the fire. Emergency workers were able to contain the blaze inside the Brass Rail’s notorious façade, preventing it from spreading inside the club and to neighbouring businesses.
