Matthew Pegg, Toronto's fire chief and general manager of the City’s Office of Emergency Management, told reporters at a November 16 press conference that the party was shut down upon police arrival and charges have been laid against the party's organizers

Moreover, the storage unit was not "designed or equipped" for the purpose of a massive birthday bash. 

So, follow-up inspections are happening in regards to Ontario building and fire codes at the location, Pegg said.

Under current provincial guidelines, organizers of an event that breaks the 10-person indoor gathering limit could face a fine of between $10,000 and $100,000. 

At the conference, Toronto's fire chief did stress that the "vast majority" of businesses in the city are currently in compliance with current COVID-19 regulations.
