Flames destroy two expropriated houses on Chesterton Shores in the Lawrence Avenue and Port Union Road area Sunday evening.

Vandals suspected in pair of fires >>>from page 1 scene of the two-alarm blaze. The nearby train tracks had to be closed because firefighters were bringing hoses across them. The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority expropriated the two homes, 173 and 149 Chesterton Shores, in 2007 in order to build a waterfront trail. But the occupants of the homes were allowed to remain in them until June of this year. TRCA waterfront specialist Nancy Gaffney

said the demolition of the homes, which are 150 metres apart, will go ahead as soon as the fire marshal releases the site. “It (fire) doesn’t change our plans at all.” Gaffney noted she’s not surprised by the suspected arson. “The Port Union park that we have is often subjected to a lot of vandalism,” she said, adding the two homes were boarded up “to minimize any opportunity for that, but they’re pretty relentless.”
