3 children, 2 adults found dead in Brampton house fire | CBC News


Three children and two adults were found dead after a fire ripped through a house in Brampton Monday morning.

Brampton Fire Chief Bill Boyes said emergency crews were called to a home in the area of Conestoga Drive and Sutter Avenue at approximately 2 a.m. for reports of a fire.

The three-alarm fire made for a “difficult entry” for crews upon arrival, Boyes said.

Boyes said a total of five people were found dead at the home — three children and two adults. 

One person was able to get out of the house and was rushed to a trauma centre with serious injuries.

Peel Regional Police said two other adults were able to leave the house without physical injuries.

“This was a challenging fire on arrival. Firefighters were met with heavy smoke and flames,” Boyes said. “Unfortunately, it has been a tragic outcome. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.”
