The vault exploded several times beginning around 5:15 p.m., sparking an electrical fire.
Plumes of brown and black smoke poured from grates outside Scotia Plaza and the Royal Bank of Canada building and sparked shouts from those on the street.
No one was injured in the blast, which Toronto Fire Services said was connected to a vault. The vault contains high-voltage electrical equipment.
Police and fire crews emptied the PATH system and had people exit 20 King St. W., which had its power knocked out during the fire.

I'm from Toronto, and this was playing on the TV all day yesterday.
No terrorist attack or even a threat of one.
It was a transformer that blew, the only threat is the toxic fumes.
I think it's all good now.
