North Cowichan-Duncan RCMP continue to investigate a fatal New Year's Day recreational-vehicle fire in Duncan.
Police and firefighters were called to the blaze on Tzouhalem Road about 6 a.m. Sunday, where they found a fifth-wheel trailer fully engulfed in flames. An unidentified person was found inside.
North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Staff Sgt. Jack MacNeill said a forensic autopsy is being arranged, which should help determine the identity of the victim. Investigators do not yet know how the fire started.
"We haven't ruled out anything," MacNeill said. He said the fire scene remained secured through Monday. The Office of the Provincial Fire Commissioner and the B.C. Coroners Service have joined the RCMP on the case.
