Police investigate fatal fire in Glace Bay

Police in Cape Breton say a 54-year-old man has died after being removed from a burning home early Monday morning.

They say they responded to the fire at a duplex on Concord Street in Glace Bay at about 1 a.m. and found the man inside.

He was taken to hospital, but succumbed to his injuries.

Police say he was the only person in the home at the time and that his name wouldn't be released until his family is notified.

People in the other unit of the duplex were not injured.

The fire marshal's office and police are trying to determine the cause of the fire.
