A police officer was taken to hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation after a fire at an Oshawa residence early Saturday morning.
The blaze broke out at a property on Verdun Road near King Street and Ritson Road at around 1 a.m.
Initial reports from the scene suggest that multiple people were inside the home at the time and that one of them may have been rescued by a police officer. That detail, however, has not been confirmed.
Police say that the fire will be investigated by the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal.
