Police say a 15-month-old Hamilton, Ont., boy is recovering in hospital from smoke inhalation after his house caught fire while he was there alone Thursday.

Police said officers have spoken with the parents, but didn't say if charges are pending.

The fire isn't considered suspicious.

A witness called 911 after spotting smoke coming from the house.

A neighbour told the Hamilton Spectator she was asked to watch the house, but wasn't told the little boy was inside.
