Downtown Midland Fire Claims a Life Despite Emergency Responders Efforts

Two sharp eyed OPP officers from the  Southern Georgian Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police while on patrol at 8:57 a.m. April 8, 2022 noticed a fully engulfed structure fire at 475 Dominion Avenue, Midland. The officers called for fire services prior to attempting to reach occupants using their fire extinguishers in an attempt to reach trapped persons in the apartments above a vacant retail store. The officers were successful in locating and removing one male apartment occupant.

Midland Fire Services responded and were supported by additional units from Tiny and Penetanguishene Fire Services which resulted in one further apartment occupant being located by fire services members. The injured were triaged and transported to an area hospital by County of Simcoe Paramedic Services for treatment. Sadly, a 51 year old female of Midland has succumbed to her injuries suffered in the fire.

The two first responding OPP officers were treated at hospital for smoke inhalation and later released.

The fire has been extinguished resulting in the structure suffering significant damage from the fire. The Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal has been contacted and will be conducting an investigation with local fire services to determine the cause of the blaze. This is an ongoing investigation and updates will be provided as they become available.HURONIA WEST OPP INVESTIGATING FATAL COLLISION
