MOOSE JAW — The Moose Jaw Police Service and Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) have determined the cause of the fire in the multi-unit dwelling on the 200 block of Athabasca Street West was accidental.
Since both agencies have determined there was no foul play in the Feb. 23 fire, the police service has concluded its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the fire and death of the two occupants.
According to previously released information, police and firefighters attended to the building near the corner of Athabasca Street West and Third Avenue Northwest in late February and found the home engulfed in flames.
Upon extinguishing the blaze, the police service, fire department and SPSA examined the scene and located two deceased people in the multi-unit building. They then worked to identify the two individuals and notify their next of kin.
The building is now a burned-out shell and remains fenced off.
