Child Dies in Valemount Fire
Valemount, B.C. – A tragic trailer park fire has claimed the life of a child in Valemount.
North District RCMP Cpl. Madonna Saunderson says fire crews responded to the blaze just after 10 p.m. last night at the Hartman Trailer Park.
She says the blaze “fully engulfed the home” with three people inside. One, a child, did not survive. The other two family members suffered second-degree burns and have been sent to the burn unit in Vancouver for treatment.
Though the local fire chief does not believe the fire was suspicious, the investigation into the blaze is ongoing.
