Man dead in North York house fire

A man died in hospital Saturday morning after a two-alarm house fire in North York, first responders said.

Toronto Fire Service district chief Stephan Powell said firefighters responded to a two-alarm house fire at 14 Calais Ave., near Downsview Park, just before 7:30 a.m. The home’s lone occupant was a man in his 60s.

Powell said the fire was put out quickly and Toronto paramedics took the man to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Toronto police said later confirmed he had died.

Fire chief Matthew Pegg said on Twitter firefighters and police will be investigating the cause of the fire.

Powell added the city’s extreme heat meant additional responders went to the scene to help the firefighters recover.

“These high heat conditions are very hard on firefighters,” Powell said. “When they fight a fire they build up heat, and the outside temperature is such that it doesn’t allow them to cool down until they remove their thermal protection.”
