Thunder Bay Police Service officers with the Uniform Patrol Branch were originally dispatched to a residential address in the 100 block of Frederica Street East following reports of a structural fire just after 9:20 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 3.

Thunder Bay Fire Rescue firefighters were dispatched to extinguish the blaze.

A deceased individual was located inside the home. As a result, members of the Major Crimes Unit became involved in the investigation of the sudden death and fire.

Members of the Office of the Fire Marshall of Ontario also became involved in the continued investigation of the fire.

A post-mortem examination of the deceased took place in Toronto on Wednesday, Oct. 6. Investigators have since begun reviewing those results, and the scene has been released by police.

As a result of the continued investigation, TBPS Major Crimes Unit investigators are now investigating the sudden death of a 33-year-old Thunder Bay man as a homicide. The TBPS is not releasing the name of the deceased out of respect for the family.

The investigation remains ongoing, and police are appealing to the public for information. Specifically, investigators are looking for residents in the area who may have home video surveillance or dash camera footage from Sunday, Oct. 3 between 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.
