A woman and two children were found unconscious on Sunday morning after a fire broke out in an apartment in Brossard.
Emergency services were dispatched to the building on St. Laurent Boulevard near St. Charles Street around 1:00 am after the fire alarm went off.
The victim was taken to hospital, but the woman was pronounced dead. The children remained in critical condition early Sunday morning.
The Longueuil Fire Department called the police.
Francois Boucher, a spokesperson for the Longueuil police, said a man, considered a key witness, was stopped at the scene and met with investigators.
The fire did not evacuate the entire tower. The damage was limited to the apartment in question.
A Longueuil police investigation is underway to clarify the circumstances of this incident.
Anyone with information can get in touch with the Info-Azimut information line or at 450 646-8500, Boucher said, and said the information can be provided anonymously.
A police command center was set up at the scene on Sunday morning.
