MONTREAL – A double-fatality fire in Point St. Charles reported just before 11 p.m. Sunday "possibly started with something cooking on the stove," Constable Raphaël Bergeron said Monday.
A 51-year-old man and an 80-year-old woman were found unconscious inside the residence, on Favard St. south of Congregation St., east of Wellington St.
Both "were declared dead as soon as they arrived in hospital," Bergeron added.
A third person suffered smoke inhalation, but "this was not life-threatening," he said.
Other possible causes haven't been completely ruled out, Bergeron said. The police arson squad is investigating.
