A house fire that claimed the lives of five people on Sunday has been deemed to be not suspicious in nature.  

At approximately 12:30 p.m. on February 18, 2024, Craik RCMP received a report of a house fire on Ottawa Street in Davidson, Saskatchewan. 

Members attended the scene immediately where the Davidson Fire Department was already responding and discovered the residence in flames. Several people were inside the home at the time of the fire.  

An 80-year-old male and 81-year-old female were removed from the house and transported to Davidson Hospital where they were pronounced deceased. 

Once the fire was extinguished, the remains of three children were found inside the home. Autopsies for all five individuals are anticipated to take place in Saskatoon this week.

Craik RCMP, in conjunction with Saskatchewan Public Safety, determined the house fire to be non-suspicious. Saskatchewan RCMP and Forensic Identification Sections assisted in the investigation which is now complete.
