Provincial police have identified the three victims of last month’s deadly house fire in Chesley, Ont.

Emergency crews responded to a fire involving more than one house on 5th Avenue Southwest in Chesley around 2:20 a.m. on June 11.

Two structures and a single-family dwelling were involved through direct contact with the blaze or exposure to the heat, according to Robert Bell, chief of the Chesley Fire Department, in an interview with 980 CFPL last month.

Few details have been made public about the fire. South Bruce OPP said at the time that an adult and young child managed to escape the fire and were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The remains of three people, a father and two young children, were located at the scene of the fire. They were identified by police on Tuesday as John Kramer, 36, Shailyn Kramer, nine, and Britnee Kramer, five.

A GoFundMe to help the family, set up in the wake of the blaze, saw more than $18,000 in donations.

Nearly a month after the blaze, police say the cause remains under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
