Fire in Burlington apartment sends two to the hospital

A fire broke out in a Burlington apartment for the elderly on January 2, sending two people to the hospital, the Toronto Star reported.

This tragic incident serves as a reminder of the harmful damage self storage can cause to loved ones and important possessions. Many families are turning to self storage units as a means of keeping valuable items and documents safe in case a fire or natural disaster strikes.

The recent fire was contained to the one apartment in the building, and police said two people were sent to the hospital, one of which sustained second and third degree burns, the news source reported.

A separate fire broke out in an unoccupied home in Newmarket on the same day. Two propane tanks used for heating helped fuel the blaze.

“They call them salamander heaters,” Fire Chief Ian Laing, told the Toronto Star. “They’re used to heat the house until it is enclosed so the construction crew can work

Police are investigating the cause of the fire.
