Three dead in 'suspicious' blaze at Prince George's Econo Lodge

3 dead in 'suspicious' fire

A fire Wednesday morning at the Econo Lodge in downtown Prince George has claimed three lives.

BC Coroners Spokesperson Andy Watson tells PrinceGeorgeMatters in an emailed statement they were notified early this afternoon of an incident at a hotel on Victoria Street. 

He says the Coroners Service is investigating to determine who died and investigate how, where, when and by what means.

Watson added the investigation is in the very early stages and no other information is available to be shared at this time.

Early this morning, a room/balcony was visibly on fire with smoke barrelling out of the structure and numerous emergency personnel on scene. 

Cpl. Craig Douglass with Prince George RCMP said this morning that the fire was 'suspicious' in nature.
