Firefighters were called to the blaze on Clover Place at about 8.40pm and discovered him inside the building.

One person, later identified as 71-year-old Stanly Smith, was found dead inside an apartment on the third floor.

"It's not worth your life", said John Dennis with Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services.

They have opened a shelter at the First Baptist Church on East Main Street in Spartanburg for those residents. A joint police and fire investigation is being carried out to establish the cause of the fire.
