Salmon Arm RCMP, BC Coroners Service investigating fatal makeshift structure fire

An early morning fire involving a deceased man is being investigated, say Salmon Arm RCMP.

According to police, emergency crews were called to the 1700 block of 10th Avenue Southwest just after 5:15 a.m., on Thursday.

Police say first responders arrived on scene and found a makeshift structure fully engulfed in flames.

RCMP added that witnesses reported explosions during the blaze, likely due to propane tanks and fuel containers being on scene.

“The body of a deceased male was discovered by fire crews inside the structure,” said Staff Sgt. Scott West.

“At this time, criminality is not suspected in the man’s sudden death. Our next steps will be to obtain a positive identification and notify his next of kin.”
