It was confirmed that the backsplit home didn’t have the two mandated smoke detectors.
Iftekhar Niazi, Jyoti and Amina Kapadia died in the blaze while 9-year-old Zoya was the only survivor.
It will be upto the Brampton Fire and Emergency Services investigators to determine if any charges will be laid under the Ontario Fire Code.
The house was a rental and the landlord did not live in the house. The Kapadia family lived in the upper level, a separate family lived in the legally-registered basement apartment. -CINEWS
