Gotta Watch: 6-alarm blaze; I was a hostage; Mustang roundup

Massive fire in Toronto – A 6-alarm fire in Toronto lit up the sky and put the lives of hundreds of firefighters at risk as 32 trucks battled the blaze in a 100-year-old building.

What it's like to be a hostage – A routine trip to the bank turned into a life-changing experience for a Texas man who was taken hostage inside. The man describes the horrific ordeal in detail, including how he was forced out in front of armed police to unlock his own SUV as a getaway car.

What about the horses? – CNN's John Zarrella brings us a beautiful piece on wild mustangs in Nevada. Activists are recording helicopter roundups of the horses on federal land. The government says it's necessary. The activists think otherwise. What do you think?

    The owner of the 100 year old building applied to demolish it last summer, but was unable to, as the building had been declared a heritage site; it's a shame we keep losing these beautiful, historic buildings.

      This building was actually 130 years old, shame to see it destroyed.
