One man is dead after a Monday morning fire in the Brentwood Trailer Court.
According to Brandon police, officers and Brandon Fire and Emergency Services responded to a fire at 9:41 a.m. on the 700 block of the trailer court.
An unresponsive 46-year-old man was found inside the residence and brought to the Brandon Regional Health Centre, where he was later pronounced dead.
Brandon police Staff Sgt. Guy Roberts said he didn’t have any additional details on the fire, but said a dog died in the fire as well.
"At this point, it’s not considered suspicious, but ultimately we work in conjunction with (Fire Commissioners’ Office of Manitoba) and await their report," he said.
A spokesperson for the Fire Commissioners’ Office of Manitoba confirmed the province is investigating. The Fire Commissioner will also determine how the fire started.
