Brantford fire kills boy, 8, and sister, 6
Mother fights for life after blaze fills home with smoke Fifteen-year-old girl escaped from upper window
Cheryl STEPAN Torstar News Service -- Page A4
Brantford--Two children are dead and their mother is fighting for life in hospital after an early morning house fire.
Another child -- a 15-year-old girl -- escaped the choking black smoke by jumping out of a second-storey window.
Neighbours watched in horror yesterday as firefighters rushed out of the home carrying the limp bodies of 8-year-old Jason PROPER, his 6-year-old sister Emily, and their 32-year-old mother, Susan. They said firefighters laid them down outside the Charing Cross St. home and tried to resuscitate them.
"There were two little bodies on the lawn. ... They were working on them for a long time," said neighbour Shirley RATHWELL. "It was really upsetting when I found out they were both gone."
The fire was especially hard on Brantford's emergency workers, who have seen a string of tragedies in the past few weeks. There have been five train-related fatalities since Nov. 5, including a train derailment last weekend that killed a woman and forced 100 people from their homes.
"It's been a very rough time," said Deputy Fire Chief Bob RUTTAN.
Emergency crews managed to revive the mother, who at first wasn't showing any signs of life, said Brantford police Inspector Jens Enslev. She was rushed to Hamilton General Hospital, where she is in critical condition in the intensive care unit.
Ashley PROPER, 15, was taken to Brantford General Hospital with injuries resulting from her fall out of the window. Their father was in the Sarnia area on business and headed back to Brantford when police told him the news, Enslev said.
The Ontario Fire Marshal's office is investigating the fire's cause. It's not believed to be suspicious, Enslev said.
Neighbours said the family just moved into the house a few weeks ago. They'd put up Christmas lights on the railing outside the small, two-storey home the day before tragedy struck.
A neighbour called 911 at 6: 24 a.m. When fire crews arrived, three minutes later, heavy black smoke was pouring from the house. Ruttan said someone met them outside and told them there were people trapped inside.
"Our crews brought them out," Ruttan said. "We have lost those children. ... Our hearts go out to those relatives."
Ann MUCKADAY was watching from across the street. Up early, she saw the flashing lights, but no flames. Then she saw a firefighter walking down the street with a child cradled in his arms.
"Her long hair was hanging down. He was carrying her like she was a rag doll," she said.
"When I saw that first girl come out, I thought everyone would make it out okay," added her 22-year-old son Greg.
"When I heard they didn't make it, it hits you like a ton of bricks."
Ruttan said damage from the fire was minimal, but smoke had filled the entire house. There was little exterior evidence of a fire other than broken windows at the front and side of the house. The house had smoke alarms, but it wasn't clear yet whether they were working.
Emily and Jason were students at Graham Bell school in Brantford. Their principal, Lorne BERRY, said the staff was shaken by the news.
"They were very, very pleasant children," he said.
Staff decided it would be best if students learned the news from their parents, rather than school staff. A crisis team will be available at the school Monday.
