A fatal fire in Mississauga early Friday morning has turned into a homicide investigation.

Fire crews were called to an alarm in the building at 177 Dundas St. W., just west of Hurontario Street, at about 4 a.m.

Firefighters found 40-year-old Randall Hill without vital signs in an apartment on the second floor. He could not be revived.

Investigators uncovered information that has led them to treat the case as a homicide. Police wouldn't elaborate on the case.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Saturday. Police have not released any suspect information.

Hill is Peel's fifth homicide of the year.

Anyone with any information about the case is asked to call police at 905-453-2121 ext. 3205, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
