This morning's greater alarm structure fire in Hyde Park was knocked down after one hour and twenty-two minutes with over 100 firefighters responding to the scene.

One civilian male was injured with second and third-degree burns and is in stable condition.

Ron Myers said the fire started in a cabinet shop when a flammable liquid fell and spilled near a power tool which ignited fumes.
