Three people are in critical condition after a fire in northeast London, Ont., Saturday morning, according to the London Fire Department.

Platoon Chief Colin Shewell says they received a call about a blaze at a townhouse on Purser Street around 11 a.m.

When crews arrived, they rescued three people from inside the home.

“Our crews did lifesaving support after the quick rescue and were able to work with (paramedics) to transport these individuals (to hospital),” said Shewell.

Shewell says the cause of the fire is also not known. He says a fire prevention officer is on-scene, the Fire Marshal’s Office has been contacted, and crews are working with London police detectives to find a origin and cause.

“(It’s) truly a tragic event that happened to a family in London,” said Shewell, who adds damage is “very extensive.”

“It’s (going) to be quite a while before (people) can live in this townhouse.”
