BRAMP­TON, Ont. — Po­lice say three peo­ple who died this morn­ing in a house fire in Bramp­ton, Ont., were mem­bers of one fam­ily. Peel re­gional po­lice say a young girl, also a mem­ber of the same fam­ily, was res­cued and taken to hos­pi­tal with life-threat­en­ing in­juries. She was listed in sta­ble con­di­tion, while her mother, fa­ther and sis­ter were killed in the blaze. Bramp­ton Fire Chief Michael Clark says that by the time fire­fight­ers ar­rived on scene shortly af­ter 4 a.m., some­one had bro­ken down the door to the main floor and saved the young girl. The child suf­fered third-de­gree burns and smoke in­hala­tion and was rushed to Sick Kids Hos­pi­tal in Toronto.
