“The whole community is devastated…. Everybody’s upset and horrified and sad for the family,” Elaine Ebanel said. “In a small community, you know everybody. You’re not intimately familiar with their family and all the things they do, but you know them all.”

Ebanel said discussions for aftercare for the first responders are already underway.

“We (are) just trying to sort how we can maybe do something or at least find out the resources that are there and make them available if people need them,” she said. “Once things are better sorted and calm, we’ll see what we can do as a community to help. (It’s a) little soon to be planning, I think.”

The Craik RCMP says the investigation is now complete and the cause of the fire is not suspicious.
