The chief of Mishkeegogamang First Nation in northwestern Ontario says the community has been immobilized by shock since a deadly house fire broke out last Thursday.
“[It’s] so sudden and shocking what’s happened,” Chief Connie Gray-McKay told CBC News on Monday. “It’s going to take a very long time to … recover from this.”
The Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service issued a news release Monday morning confirming the remains of four people had been found at the scene.
The release said the confirmation was the result of a joint investigation by the Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service, the Ontario Provincial Police Forensic Identification Service, the Ontario Fire Marshal, the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service and the Office of the Chief Coroner.
Post-mortem examinations are to be conducted in Toronto later this week.
