1 dead, 3 injured after ‘suspicious’ Mississauga house fire

One person is dead and three others injured after a house fire in Mississauga that is being investigated as suspicious, emergency services say.

Crews responded to a home on Bromsgrove Road, near Winston Churchill Boulevard and Royal Windsor Drive, around 3 a.m. Tuesday.

According to Mississauga Fire Chief Deryn Rizzi, two people were rescued by firefighters from the residence while two others were able to escape the blaze by themselves.

All four were taken to hospital, Peel paramedics said. The patients included two men and two women, one of whom is elderly.

Two of the people who were in the home were without vital signs, while another had life-threatening injuries. A fourth person’s injuries were considered minor, paramedics said.

It’s not clear which of the people taken to hospital died. 

Peel police said they are still trying to notify the next of kin of the deceased person, so their name and gender have not been released.

Police are investigating the origin of the blaze alongside the Ontario Fire Marshal.

“The cause of the fire is unknown at this point, Peel Regional Police is treating this as suspicious. All possibilities are being considered as a part of the investigation,” the service said in a statement.

Bromsgrove Road was closed between Cramer Street and Winston Churchill Boulevard for the investigation. Emergency crews are expected to be on scene for “quite sometime,” police said.
