Investigation Continues Into Deadly Mississauga Fire


Two seniors are dead and the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office has been called in to probe a fire - and reported explosion - in Mississauga.

The victims are in their 70s and live in the house.

Emergency crews raced to a home in Erin Mills at 7:36 p.m. Sunday, finding a car ablaze in a townhouse garage at 3510 South Millway.

That’s in the South Common area, near Burnhamthorpe Rd. and Erin Mills Pkwy.

There was heavy damage to the house and vehicle.

The victims - who had severe burns - were reportedly using a barbecue, however, officials aren’t yet confirming there was an explosion.

Two patients were found with no vital signs and were being “actively resuscitated,” said Peel paramedics.

A man was pronounced dead at the scene while a woman was transported to hospital where she later died.

There’s no word yet on the cause or a damage estimate.

“The OFM is investigating,” said Peel Regional Police Sgt. Josh Colley.
