Brampton house fire that sent 2 to hospital not suspicious: police

Peel Regional Police say a Brampton house fire that sent two men to hospital Wednesday night is not believed to be suspicious.

The fire on Thomas Street, northwest of Main Street North and Queen Street East, injured three people Wednesday night, with one person treated at the scene.

Police say the two men taken to Brampton Civic Hospital have non-life-threatening injuries.

Sgt. Matt Small of Peel Regional Police said one man, 51, is now in stable condition, while the other man, 73, was taken to hospital for precautionary reasons.

The two men were initially in critical condition, suffering from burns and smoke inhalation, Peel Regional Paramedic Service said in a tweet Wednesday night.

Police say they were called about the fire at around 7 p.m. The cause of the blaze is still being investigated by the Ontario Fire Marshal's office.

The house is believed to be a rooming house, police said.
