A tragic update to an already terrible story…
A baby boy who was critically injured in that big house fire in southwest Edmonton this morning—has died in the hospital—-and his mother—is still in critical condition.
The blaze happened before 4am—at the home in the Ambleside neighbourhood.
Sid Fontoura lives nearby—and told the Edmonton Journal the homeowner had managed to get outside–but said his wife and baby—were still inside the burning house:
“There was a couple of other guys going up and down the street banging on doors trying to get people to know there was a fire. I went back in my house–my daughter was awake and I had her phone the people next to the home that was burning. We got that family out—they came to our house. By the time we got them settled—the EMS guys had arrived.”
It still isnt known what caused the fire—-but the house has been destroyed.
And investigators are already saying there’s something suspicious about this blaze.
