Pinewood Park fire takes a life

A man is dead after a fire near the intersection of Pinewood Park Dr. and Lakeshore Dr.

North Bay Fire and Emergency Services (NBFES) were called to 13 Pinewood Park Dr. around 9:30 on Wednesday evening. They arrived at what appeared to be an abandoned home with smoke rising from it.

Firefighters entered and searched the property. They located a man who was carried from the home.

Deputy Fire Chief Greg Saunders says that the victim was then given to paramedics who provided care.

“The paramedics worked for 45 minutes in the back of the ambulance and went to extraordinary lengths to try and save the victim… but the smoke inhalation was too severe and the patient was declared deceased at the scene,” he said.

Ontario Fire Marshal investigator James Allen will work alongside North Bay Fire Investigator Joe Gardiner and members of the North Bay Police Service to figure out the cause of the fire.

Saunders says the fire does not seem suspicious as of Thursday morning.
