GRIMSBY – A man and a woman were found dead this morning after emergency crews were called out to a home in Grimsby.
Niagara Regional police, Grimsby fire and Niagara EMS responded to a call on Ridge Road West, between Woolverton and Mountain Rounds, around 8:30 a.m.
Niagara Regional Police say the man and the woman, both seniors, were found dead in the house.
“Upon entering, there was evidence that there was recently a small fire in the home,” says Const. Derek Watson.
It is unclear whether the fire was out when emergency crews arrived.
