    LABELLE | A woman was killed Sunday morning in a fire in her accommodation in Labelle near Mont-Tremblant in the Laurentians.

    According to the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), the flames have taken birth around 6 a.m. in a building housing four apartments located on the rue du Moulin.

    The blaze started in the apartment occupied by the victim, a woman of 57 years old. Neighbors of this last brought her out of her home before the arrival of the rescue but, despite efforts by firefighters and paramedics, his death was found shortly after his arrival at the hospital.

    The fire has not caused significant damage to the building, and confined to the home occupied by the victim, who was filled with smoke to the arrival of the rescue, said the spokesman of the SQ Stéphane Tremblay.

    The cause of the disaster seems to be accidental. Fire cooking could be the cause of this tragedy.

    Since a death occurred in the course of the disaster, what are the investigators of the division of the major Crimes of the Sûreté du Québec, who will lead the investigation, with the help of a technician in the fire.
