RCMP say the bodies of a woman and a boy who died in a house fire earlier this week at Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation have been located.

The remains of 61-year-old Donna Kay and 10-year-old Teegan Ahenakew were found at the site of the blaze.

Both of the victims are from Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation.

The fire happened on Monday and the home was completely destroyed.

Two other men who had been in the home managed to escape and were treated for smoke inhalation.

Because the blaze was so intense, investigators had to wait for the scene to cool before they could search for victims.

Members of the family have asked for privacy during this difficult time.
