A city man is said to be in “good-to-fair” condition in the burn unit of a Toronto hospital after being transferred as a result of a Thunder Bay fire.

The blaze broke out in a Strand Avenue home on Friday afternoon and the lone male occupant attempted to stop it both with an extinguisher borrowed from a neighbour as well as shovelling snow into the house.

Thunder Bay Fire Rescue responded after receiving an emergency call from a neighbour seeing smoke coming through the windows.

The man was transported to Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre before being moved to the burn unit at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

The Ontario Fire Marshal is investigating the cause.
