RCMP announced Monday afternoon that remains have been found during the investigation into a hotel fire in Bashaw.
Investigators were going through what is left of the Bashaw Motor Inn Monday afternoon when they found the remains. Because of a water main break there is water flowing through the area, so the retrieval of the body will be delayed. An autopsy will be scheduled for this week to determine identity and cause of death.
Bashaw RCMP were called to the hotel at 1:15 Saturday morning. While residents have reported hearing and feeling what seemed like an explosion that has not been confirmed by officials. The cause of the fire, and whether it’s suspicious, have not been determined. (kb)
