UPDATE: Woman killed in Tottenham fire identified
A woman is dead and two people have been injured after an overnight house fire in Tottenham.
The New Tecumseh Fire Dept., says firefighters arrived at the scene of the blaze in the single-storey residence to find ``heavy fire conditions,'' which also damaged an adjoining home.
There was no immediate word on the cause of the fire in the community about 50 kilometres northwest of Toronto.
The woman has been identified as Krestine Collins, a mother of two. Her 15 year old son suffered burns attempting to escape the fire.
Jeffy Tebby, a supervisor with Ontario's Office of the Fire Marshal, said the home suffered extensive damage.
He said investigators will be trying to determine if there were working smoke alarms in the home and will be looking at potential causes for the fire.
``We will look at any of them and all of them,'' he said.
Tebby also said heavy equipment will be used to pull down unsafe parts of the home.
