Although there was nothing visible from outside the red-brick structure when crews first arrived, platoon Chief Gary Mosburger told 980 CFPL at the time that crews battled thick smoke and zero visibility inside a single unit on the second floor.
A 53-year-old woman was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
On Tuesday, police announced she had died of their injuries. The woman’s identity has not been released.
