Police continue to investigate a house fire on Pelican Lake First Nation last Friday in which a three-year-old girl was killed.

When Spiritwood RCMP were called to the home around 11 a.m., Chitek Lake firefighters were in the final stages of putting the blaze out.

An adult male, adult female and two children escaped the fire with minor injuries and were taken to the Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert.

Upon further investigation, the body of the three-year-old girl was discovered inside the remnants of the burned house.

Police are not releasing the names of the deceased or the survivors while the fire is under investigation.
