Man dies of injuries after Kirkwood Avenue fire
Victim seriously burned early Wednesday morning
A man in his 60s who suffered serious burns in a fire on Kirkwood Avenue early Wednesday morning has died, Ontario's fire marshal says.
Ottawa firefighters were called to a highrise between Devonshire Place and Macy Boulevard around 1:45 a.m., where they found smoke in a corridor and rescued one person, according to a news release.
Paramedics said they took a man in his 60s from the apartment to hospital in critical condition. He later died of his injuries.
The fire was under control by about 2 a.m., firefighters said. Its cause is still under investigation.
