Police in Brockville, Ont., are investigating a fire that left one person dead early Saturday morning.
Emergency crews responded to a fire at a three-storey building near Perth Street and Brock Street around 3 a.m. Saturday.
When firefighters arrived, several people were stuck inside the building on the second storey, said Melanie Jones, Brockville's fire chief.
"When the initial two trucks arrived, they had four people that they rescued from windows and there was someone injured outside," said Jones.
Two people were sent to the hospital, Jones added.
One person was pronounced dead at the scene, said Staff Sgt. Darryl Boyd with the Brockville Police Service.
Police had been searching for three people earlier Saturday, but in an update around 2:30 p.m. they said all of the building's residents were safely accounted for.
"We're not going to be releasing any details, obviously, of the these individuals involved or residents of the building [out of] respect of them and their families," Boyd told CBC.
Police are asking the public to stay away from the area as the investigation continues. Brockville police are investigating the fire alongside the Brockville Fire Department, the Office of the Fire Marshal and the Office of the Chief Coroner.
