A two-and-a-half-month-old girl is dead following a house fire in Hudson’s Hope.
Emergency crews were called to the house on Lahagarte Road shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday.
When police arrive on scene they see the home had collapsed and that flames could be seen coming from the structure. People on scene were attempting to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading to the grass and nearby forest.
Police were told that everyone was out of the home and were at a neighbouring residence. There, police learned that the girll, who had been removed from the home had died. The girl’s father had sustained severe burns to his upper body and face in his attempt to save his child. He was later flown by STARS to hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Police and fire officials are actively working on this investigation to determine the cause of the fire. Although the investigation is still in the early stages, police and fire officials do not suspect the fire to be suspicious. The names of those involved are not being released at this time.
