ORIGINAL

Shortly after 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 11, 2021, we received a call from City of Greater Fire Services as Firefighters were on scene of a structural fire at a residential building on Bruce Avenue in Greater Sudbury.

Through the investigation, it has been determined that there were four individuals inside of the unit where the fire originated. One of the individuals, a 37 year old man was able to escape by jumping from a second story window. Unfortunately a 26 year old woman was pronounced deceased on scene and a 50 year old man was later pronounced deceased at the hospital. The fourth individual, a 33 year old woman sustained critical injuries. Both the 37 year old man and the 33 year old woman were transported to hospital by City of Greater Sudbury Paramedic Services where they remain in critical condition.

Our deepest condolences go out to the families and friends of those impacted by this tragic event. The names of the individuals will not be released out of respect for their families’ wishes and we ask that you respect their privacy during this very difficult and emotional time.

None of the other residents in the building at the time of the fire sustained any injuries, however a number of residents were displaced due to the fire. The Red Cross is assisting those residents with accommodations until they are able to return home.

Detectives from our Criminal Investigation Division are working in collaboration with the Coroner’s Office and the Ontario Fire Marshall’s Office in relation to this incident. The investigation is ongoing.
