Three people are dead and a little girl is fighting for her life in hospital after a house fire in Brampton. The little girl suffered third-degree burns and smoke inhalation and was rushed to Sick Kids Hospital Toronto.
Brampton firefighters were called to the semi-detached house on Madison Street in the area of Dixie Road and Williams Parkway at around 4:10 a.m.
A basement tenant had escaped his unit, broke down a door to the main floor and saved a young girl, Brampton Fire Chief Michael Clark told reporters on scene.
Clark said firefighters attacked the fire from the front of the house and had the blaze under control in 10 minutes. He said it appears the fire started in the main level of the home.
Official said the relationship between the three people who died and the young girl isn’t clear. Neighbours said a family of four, including two daughters, lived on the main level of the semi-detached house.
Clark said he was unsure whether there were any working smoke alarms in the home. The cause of the fire is being investigated by Brampton Fire, Peel Regional Police and the Ontario Fire Marshal.
