UPDATE: Police sent notification just after midnight to say Green Street has reopened to traffic
Halifax Regional Police have shut down Green Street and a small part of Barrington as emergency crews deal with a fire in the south end.
The Barrington closure is detouring some Halifax Transit buses, as of 6:50 p.m. Monday.
Police say there are no reports of injuries in the blaze at 5280 Green Street -- a plaza that houses a U-Haul location -- but the windows of a car parked in front of a hydrant were smashed so firefighters could access water to extinguish the flames.
The fire is next door to a retirement residence, and some living there are leaving The Berkeley building, but Cst. Brian Palmeter at the scene tells HalifaxToday.ca no official evacuation has been issued.
A transit bus has been brought in for the seniors.
