UPDATE: Seven-year-old dies in Red Deer County mobile home fire

RCMP received a 911 call of multiple mobile homes on fire in Les’s Trailer Park

Blackfalds RCMP received a 911 call of multiple mobile homes on fire in Les’s Trailer Park around 2 a.m. Friday.

Three mobile homes were on fire and Red Deer County Fire Services responded and evacuated neighbouring properties.

Emergency medical services transported four persons — an adult male, adult female and two male children — to hospital with injuries, including life-threatening injuries.

Fire inspector Scott Tuton, with Red Deer County Fires Services, said when he arrived one of the homes was fully engulfed in flames.

A search of one of the mobile homes was conducted at approximately 9 a.m., when the fire was out.

RCMP were advised by fire personnel that one occupant, believed to be a seven-year-old female, was found deceased. A search of the structures continues.

Blackfalds RCMP continue to investigate this incident with the assistance of investigators from the Red Deer County Fire Services.

“We’ll still be here for the rest of the day,” Tuton said about the investigation.

Firefighters from Sylvan Lake and Red Deer city also helped fight the fire.
