Trailer fire leaves one dead
One man is dead following a fire at a residence in McLeese Lake.
The trailer was reported to be fully engulfed in flames about 2:30 Tuesday morning.
The RCMP were unable to immediately search the residence due to the heat of the fire.
Unfortunately, fire trucks were unable to assist as there is no fire protection or fire service for the rural McLeese Lake residents.
In the early afternoon, the RCMP discovered a body within the burnt structure.
There is no indication of foul play at this time and the identity of the deceased has not been confirmed.
The RCMP are continuing their investigation in these early stages to determine the cause of the fire as well as the identity of the deceased.
