Elderly Rockland man dies in condo fire

An 82-year-old man has died in an early morning fire Sunday in Rockland.

Police say the body of Paul Emile Simard was found in the low-rise condo building on Laurier Street.

Emergency crews got the call around 5:50 a.m. for the blaze, which is still being investigated. Police don't suspect it was criminal in nature.

Simard's wife was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Other units in the building were not damaged and everyone has been allowed back in their homes.
