Previously, there had been conflicting reports on the ground about the building’s tenants and their attempts to find temporary housing through social services.

Carmichael Outreach is just down the street from where the fire started. They provided emergency shelter for about 30 people who emerged from the burning building.

Carmichael began coordinating with the mobile crisis, the Red Cross and social services as tenants warmed up.

Carmichael told Global News that of the 15 people who went the social services route, 13 of them were housed while 2 were denied.

In a statement provided to Global News, the Ministry of Social Services says: “We understand that everyone who presented to social services on Thursday either had a place to stay or we were able to connect them with a shelter.

“We continue to work with our community partners to help affected individuals continue to access emergency shelter as needed and connect them with support to begin arrangements for long-term housing options. ”

fire investigation

The fire started in the five-unit apartment building shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday morning.

When crews arrived on scene, the building was completely engulfed in flames and smoke was billowing from inside.

Crews took about three hours to bring the fire under control.

Due to the fire, the building had many structural stability issues and a collapsed roof, which made it unsafe for firefighters to enter at the time.

A backhoe was brought in Thursday night and portions of the building were torn down so crews could access areas of the fire that were still burning and put it out completely.

In the next few days a complete dismantling of the building will take place, dismantling it layer by layer.

Once the teardown is done, fire investigators will be able to determine where the fire started and the cause of the fire.

Deputy Fire Chief Gord Hewitt explained the process of using heavy machinery to secure and stabilize the building, though he is not yet sure if there are bodies inside.

“It’s a very delicate process,” Hewitt said. “We need to ensure the safety of our investigation team while also being careful and aware that there could still be victims inside.”

Hewitt added that they determined from fire patterns and marks that the fire originated in a unit kitchen, however a full understanding of causality will still take longer.
