Person found dead in fire at commercial building in Niagara Falls, Ont.


NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. — One person has been found dead after a fire at a commercial building in Niagara Falls, Ont.

Niagara Regional Police say the blaze broke out at the unused building Sunday morning.

Crews were on the scene most of the day fighting the fire, which made the building unsafe to enter.

Police say a body was found inside, but investigators have not yet been able to retrieve the remains or make an identification.

The provincial coroner and fire marshal are now part of the ongoing investigation.

No charges have yet been laid.
