At 2:34 a.m. this morning, Halifax District RCMP, Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency (HRFE), and EHS responded to a 911 call of a duplex on fire on Leaside Dr. in Lower Sackville.
RCMP can confirm there are two fatalities, a 58-year-old man and a 11-year-old girl. An 18-year-old man was transported to the QEII Health Sciences Centre with life-threatening injuries. A 46-year-old woman suffered minor injuries after being rescued by RCMP officers from a second floor window.
RCMP and HRFE are in the preliminary stages of the investigation to determine the cause of the fire.
Our thoughts are with the victims family during this tragic time.
