No smoke alarms in fatal fire
Retired couple die in bedroom; heavy smokers, police say
son frantically tries to douse fire with garden hose
By Leslie FERENC, Staff Reporter
A man who frantically tried to put out a blaze at his Scarborough home with a garden hose was unable to save his retired parents who were trapped in their second-floor bedroom.
Police say both Jack WILSON, 68, and his wife Sharon, 61, were heavy smokers and there were no smoke alarms in the home.
Emergency crews were called to 121 Hildenboro Square near Warden and McNicoll Aves. just after midnight Tuesday where they discovered the couple's son, Trevor WILSON, trying to put out the fire. Trevor, a Canada Post employee, had come home from work to find black smoke billowing from the house.
The couple was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead. Autopsies were being performed yesterday to determine the cause of death.
The Ontario Fire Marshal's Office is also investigating.
Fire officials say the blaze likely started in the kitchen but wouldn't confirm if it had been ignited by a smouldering cigarette tossed into a trash bin.
A melted plastic garbage can with cigarette butts was clearly visible amongst the charred debris sitting outside the front door of the home yesterday.
Fire Chief Bill STEWARD/STEWART/STUART confirmed there were no smoke alarms in the house.
"In this case, smoke alarms could most certainly have made the difference between life and death," he said in a release yesterday. Neighbour Chris BABANARAS, who has lived across the street from the WILSONs for 22 years, cried as he sat in his garage looking at their home, the smell of smoke still heavy in the air.
"They were a very nice family, a very quiet family," he said of Jack, a retired engineer, and wife Sharon, a nurse, and their two adult sons, Trevor and older brother Carey.
"It's hard to believe that I saw him (Jack) yesterday and he waved to me. I can't believe they are now gone."
A woman, who would only identify herself as a family friend, laid two bouquets of pink carnations next to a tree on the WILSONs' front lawn.
She said the couple's sons were together yesterday and "were pretty struck" by the deaths.
Neighbour David MILLER said he grew up with the WILSONs' sons, now in their late 20s and early 30s, and described the family as "quiet, nice people." He said he often saw Jack WILSON outside with Carey's young children.
"This is very sad and very tragic," MILLER added.
Lenny SPATAFORA, who lives directly across the street, said he arrived home about 11: 30 p.m. Monday "and didn't see anything unusual." About 20 minutes later, he could smell smoke.
"I thought my parents had been cooking and had burned something on the stove," he said yesterday.
SPATAFORA described the WILSONs as a great family.
"It's so sad to see this happen."
Yellow police tape cordoned off the property yesterday as fire officials continued their investigation.
Charred walls in the hallway of the house were clearly visible as the front door of the home remained open for most of the day yesterday. Blackened curtains fluttered through the broken windows of the front bedroom on the second floor.
