Two people have been taken to hospital after a fire broke out this afternoon at the corner of Barton and Catherine Streets at about 4:15.
As many as 15 units were deployed to the scene at MC Automotive and took about 45 minutes to knock down the flames.
Emergency crews received reports that two cars inside were fully involved and two workers inside were injured; they were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation and chest pain.
Residents in the area are being asked to stay inside and close their windows as smoke continues to flow from the building.
