At 1:10am on December 28, 2022, Leaf Rapids RCMP responded to a residential fire at a residence on Keyask Bay.
Officers were first on scene and spoke to an adult female who had escaped the home with minor injuries sustained in the fire. The female indicated that another adult female was still in the home.
Officers attempted to enter the residence to search for the female but were pushed back due to the flames and heavy smoke.
The local fire department arrived and extinguished the fire.
Once the fire was extinguished, remains were located inside. Identification of the individual is pending an autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
The Office of the Fire Commissioner is assisting with the ongoing investigation.
