One person is dead following a fire in Boissevain early this morning.
At about 2 a.m., Boissevain and Killarney RCMP were called to a house fire on Peters Street. It took four hours to battle the blaze. One person managed to escape but another was found dead.
The Office of the Fire Commissioner is on scene but frigid temperatures are slowing the investigation. The cause of the fire is unknown.
An autopsy on the deceased person has been scheduled in Winnipeg. The person’s name will not be released.
