After the fire was extinguished, the body was discovered in the debris. Police say a post mortem is currently being conducted by the coroner but no details on the identity of the person have been released yet.

Peel's homicide unit has been notified, but it is not currently considered a homicide investigation.

Neither of the two homes appeared to be damaged, police said, and no one else was hurt.

The roads have now been re-opened.
