3 bodies at scene of fire

By	NanaimoNewsNOW Staff

Fire investigators are combing through the remains of a home in Nanaimo, where a man, woman, and seven-year-old girl lost their lives yesterday afternoon. Fourteen firefighters were able to extinguish the fire at 2:30 p.m.

A family member confirmed their identities to CTV Vancouver Island the next day.

Neighbours told CTV they heard an altercation at the home, followed by an explosion.

Stuart said the loud noise was actually a passerby who spotted the fire and was trying to raise the alarm to get people outside.

Firefighters were first to arrive at the scene and located the bodies as they put out the blaze.

RCMP, including the Nanaimo detachment's serious crime unit, and Nanaimo Fire Rescue will start the investigation into the cause of the fire and the deaths on Wednesday.

But friends said Scarr had recently moved back into the home where the father and daughter lived.

They said there had been an ongoing dispute between the two parents over custody of Piper.

The names of the victims have not been released, although police say their family and the local school district have been notified.

RCMP said the investigation may take a significant amount of time due to the case's complexity.

Police are speaking with neighbours and the coroner to determine what happened.

"At this time we have no other information about the people involved in the fire, other than it was a male and female and a seven-year-old child", Cpl.

"The innocence of youth affects everybody".

No cause of the fire has been determined yet, and until it is, Stuart says it's considered to be suspicious.
