BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

One person is dead and three others were taken to hospital following a two-alarm fire at a home in Scarborough.

Crews were called to Haida Court and Lash Court, near Morningside Avenue and Ellesmere Road, around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Fire officials are not sure what caused the fire but say they believe it started in the basement.

The body of a woman, believed to be in her 20s, was found in a bedroom on the second floor of the home. Officials had originally classified her as unaccounted for.

Fire officials said all four people in the home are believed to be tenants and are students who went to University of Toronto Scarborough Campus.

One of the four people living in the home had to jump from a second floor window to escape the fire.

Paramedics said a woman in her 20s suffered serious burns and two others were taken to hospital for minor smoke inhalation.
