The victim of last week’s motorhome fire in South Surrey has been identified as 52-year-old William Philip Peltz.

B.C. Coroners Service announced Peltz as the deceased on Dec. 2, requesting privacy for his family “at this difficult time.”

Peltz died after fire broke out in his RV just before 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 27, at the Seacrest Motel & RV Park in the 800-block of 160 Street.

Neighbours had called 911 after seeing smoke; Surrey firefighters extinguished the blaze and found Peltz inside.

He’s been described as “a very nice man… friendly.”

According to Wednesday’s statement, investigation into Peltz’s death continues. Surrey firefighters last week said it highlights the need for residents to ensure they have working smoke alarms in their homes.
