One person is dead after an overnight car fire in the city’s east end.

Police were called to a home near Kingston Road and Midland Avenue around 2:30 a.m.

It appears a male victim suffered from smoke inhalation after something inside the vehicle ignited, police said. The engine did not ignite, police said.

It’s likely alcohol was a factor in the incident and the fire does not appear to be suspicious, police said.
