Toronto Fire Services say a person was found dead following a small fire in a Scarborough apartment unit on Friday.
A spokesperson for Toronto fire said crews were called to a building in the area of Birchmount Road and Sheppard Avenue at 8:10 a.m.
The spokesperson said there was small fire in a unit but by the time crews arrived, it had already been extinguished.
The unit was ventilated to get rid of some smoke.
A deceased male was found inside, but it’s not clear if he died from the fire or from another cause, the spokesperson said, adding that it will take a few days to receive the coroner’s report.
The spokesperson said it’s believed he was alone inside at the time of the incident.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
