An “excessive amount of growth” is the regulatory problem Toronto Police are dealing with after a fire uncovered a grow op.
Police say some sort of combustible started the building fire at 1020 Dupont street near Dovercourt, Saturday Morning.
Upon gaining access to fight the blaze, Fire Crews noticed 80 or so pot plants in the basement.
The grow op, measuring 22 metres by 90 metres, was set up in the building’s basement according to Toronto Fire Services.
Police say the facility did have a license to grow pot, just not that much, according to the terms of the owners agreement.
There were no injuries, and the fire marshal is continuing the investigating.
