Toronto firefighters are on the scene after an electrical fire broke out at the top of the CN Tower early Wednesday morning.

Crews received a call for a fire at the antenna level just after 4:15 a.m.

There was burning inside the conduits, which caused a tar-like substance to drip onto the observation deck.

The fire is now out, and the antenna has been de-energized.
