Surrey man’s two children die in Lytton fire

Boy, 4, and girl, 5, killed in motorhome blaze.

Two children of a Surrey man were killed in a motorhome fire in Lytton this week.

On Wednesday, a motorhome in Lytton caught fire with two children their grandparents, who are in their mid-50s, inside.

The adults were awoken by smoke detectors and two barking dogs.

The fire took place in the front of the vehicle, where the two children, a four-year-old boy and a girl, five, were sleeping.

The adults carried the children to the back of the motorhome where they passed the children out the side windows of the unit.

Once the children were out, the woman collapsed inside and had to be rescued by employees of the grandfather.

All four were taken to Royal Inland Hospital where they were treated, however, the boy and girl succumbed to  injuries sustained in the fire.

Police say they have determined the fire is not suspicious.

The Lytton RCMP continues to assist the B.C. Coroners Services with their investigation into the cause of death of the two children.

Names of the deceased nor those of the injured couple have been released by the investigating agencies at this time.
