THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO   – June 30, 2019 (LSN)  A fire investigation into an early morning fire which has left one person in critical condition is underway.  Thunder Bay Fire Rescue and Thunder Bay Police are working with a fire investigator from the Office of the Fire Marshal to determine the origin, cause and circumstances of this fire. It is reported that the building was  occupied by 6 to 10 Foreign Students

TBFR was able to quickly assemble sufficient fire fighters on the scene to initiate simultaneous fire attack and rescue of a trapped victim.  Some of the occupants reported barely making it out of the building, literally escaping through the smoke with flames over their heads.  Once rescued from the fire, the victim was cared for by SNEMS paramedics and is now reported to be in the ICU of TBRHSC in stable but critical condition.

Deputy Chief Greg Hankkio reinforced the importance of landlords ensuring their properties are properly equipped with working smoke alarms.  “Landlords need to ensure that working smoke alarms are properly installed and maintained.  This includes keeping appropriate records”.

The investigation of this fire will look into origin and cause as well as an examination of the fire code compliance of this property and will review the use of the building which was occupied by 6-10 international students and is not known to be a properly approved or configured rooming house.
