The tower management turned off power to the antenna mast which is responsible for broadcasting more than 30 television and FM radio signals across southern Ontario before Toronto firefighters extinguished the fire.

A smoldering fire at Toronto's landmark Canadian National Tower, which broke out around 4 a.m. (0800 GMT) Wednesday, has been put out, according to Canadian television network CTV.

Authorities say the fire was at the highest point of the tower in a confined space that's hard to access.

Though the cause of the fire is not yet known, Toronto Fire District Chief Stephan Powell was quoted by CBC News as saying that one of the conduits that feed the various antenna feeds may have started to smoulder or burn. Firefighters used ladders above the Skypod observation platform to reach the fire.

He said all cleaning staff were cleared from the building and no injuries have been reported.
