Mosburger says Adelaide Street was closed as firefighters needed to access hydrants that were on the other side of the street.

“The hydrant locations were on the opposite side of the road, and we don’t like traffic driving over our water hoses, so we closed the road down.”

Adelaide Street is expected to be closed until mid-morning Tuesday as crews work to extinguish any hotspots.
