Two people were rushed to hospital, one in critical condition, after a house fire in Brampton on Wednesday night.

The fire broke out at a home on Thomas Street, near Main Street North and Queen Street East, around 7:30 p.m. Peel Regional Police say the home may have been a rooming house, as it was divided into separate living areas.

Paramedics said they treated three people. The two victims who were taken to Brampton Civic Hospital were treated for burns and smoke inhalation. One is listed in serious condition while the other is in critical condition.

The third victim suffered minor injuries.

It's unclear what caused the fire at this time.

Ontario Fire Marshal investigators are heading to the scene.
