About 30 firefighters are on the scene of a deadly house fire on Ile-Bizard, just off Montreal's West Island.

When they arrived at the home on 5th Avenue at around 7 p.m., the house was in flames.

Firefighters found one person inside, apparently in cardiac arrest.

A fire official has confirmed that person has died.

More details to come.
