A preliminary investigation by the Ontario Fire Marshal into Friday's deadly blaze in Clarence-Rockland has determined the fire was accidental.

Investigators found no working smoke alarms in the home on Caron Street.

Crews were called early Friday morning to a home, where the body of a man was recovered from the scene. The man's identity has not been released.

Ontario law requires working smoke alarms on each level of a home, and outside any sleeping areas.

Carbon monoxide alarms are also required in homes with natural gas, propane or wood burning appliances.

Fines for not having the alarms in place are $360.
