Toronto police say a woman has died following a fire that broke out in a building in the city’s east end Wednesday night.
Emergency crews were called to Woodbine Avenue and Gerrard Street East at around 9:42 p.m. for reports of a fire.
A woman in her 70s was found without vital signs and taken to hospital in life-threatening condition, police said.
She later died from her injuries, police said.
Police said the fire has been put out.
