A witness was driving by a home on Bethel Road on Saturday afternoon when they noticed a house was on fire. Monday, OPP clarified that the fire was contained to a detached garage, where Amey was living. The garage was destroyed by the blaze.
The Office of the Fire Marshal’s investigation into the incident has concluded, but OPP could not provide the cause of the fire or the estimated damage to the property owners.
The fire marshal could not provide that information either, saying “additional analysis is being conducted to determine the origin, cause and circumstances of this tragic fire.”
