Investigators probe fire at Thunder Bay seniors home
Fire investigators have now started to look into a small fire that happened this morning at a seniors home in Thunder Bay.
Firefighters put out a fire in the mechanical room at the Suomi Koti residence on County Boulevard.
Nobody was injured in the fire, but several main floor units were evacuated. The home has approximately 60 units, and between 80 and 100 residents.
Many people were moved to a multipurpose room to stay warm, as fire officials were concerned about having the residents outside in the cold temperatures.
An administrator of the home said the first thing that went through her head when she heard about the fire was the tragic fire at a seniors home in Quebec.
Investigation into the fire continues.
