A 67-year-old resident of Curve Lake has died, after suffering burns to much of his body in an explosion Thursday.
Anishinabek Police say about 10:20 p.m. they were called along with fire and paramedic personnel to a report of a structure fire on Ninotig Street on the Curve Lake First Nation. Authorities say Kenneth Taylor, 67, had attended to his generator when an explosion took place. Nearby residents provided life-saving measures until paramedics transferred him to Peterborough Regional Health Centre. He was subsequently flown by Ornge Air Ambulance to Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. He succumbed to his injuries.
The Ontario Fire Marshal attended the scene and the investigation into the cause is ongoing.
