Fire engulfed a mobile home in Penticton early Friday and, when it was doused, emergency crews found a deceased adult inside.
According to Penticton RCMP, the fire took place at approximately 5 a.m. along the 3600 block of Airport Road. Police say when the Penticton Indian Band volunteer fire department arrived first on scene, the mobile home was fully engulfed. The Penticton Fire Department also attended to render assistance, as did the RCMP.
Firefighters eventually knocked down the blaze and, after opening the trailer and entering, located the deceased individual. Police say foul play isn’t suspected.
The RCMP say they are continuing to assist the B.C. Coroners Service with the investigation.
