'Delay in fire detection' played role in deadly East Gwillimbury blaze,

'Delay in fire detection' played role in deadly East Gwillimbury blaze,
fire marshal says
Ontario Fire Marshal Tadeusz Wieclawek says a "delay in fire detection" played a role in a fire that killed four family members in East Gwillimbury last week.
Wieclawek says there was no smoke detector on the home's main floor and a security system that would have reported a fire did not function as it should have because its wiring was "compromised" by the fire, which originated in a laundry room and trapped the family in a second-floor master bedroom.
Fire officials are still working to confirm the cause of the blaze.
Kevin Dunsmuir, 55, his 51-year-old wife Jennifer and their sons Robert, 19, and Cameron, 16, died of smoke inhalation.
