Officials in Mississauga are investigating after a house fire killed two people early on Saturday morning.
Mississauga fire platoon chief Ryan Baird told Global News crews were called to a semi-detached house on Genovese Place at around 1:15 a.m. Saturday.
Damage was limited to one room within the two-storey building and the fire was brought under control fairly quickly, he said.
However, two victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
The cause of the fire is unknown, and an investigation is underway. Both Mississauga officials and the Ontario Fire Marshall are probing its cause.
