There are two possible fatalities in a house fire in the northwest reaches of Adjala-Tosorontio that firefighters are battling at this hour (3 p.m., Mon., March 16, 2009)
Just before 2 p.m. a neighbour of the home located at 996380 the Tosorontio/Mulmur Townline north of Rosemont, called 911 to report heavy smoke coming from the home.
Another neighbour at the scene said an elderly couple lives in the home and may not have made it out. The couple seldom left home. The husband was confined to a wheelchair.
The house is fully involved and firefighters from Rosemont and both Adjala-Tosorontio fire stations are currently on the scene battling the blaze, but the damage is already extensive. There’s little left of the home except the foundation now.
Flames were visible initially. Now only smoke is coming from the ruins of the home.
Reporter Kurtis Elsner is on the scene. More details, photos and video as they become available.
