Coroner's service says three bodies were found after fire in Nanaimo, BC

Three people whose bodies were found in a burning south Nanaimo home have been identified as a seven-year-old and her parents.

The bodies of Amberlee Scarr (left), her daughter Piper Stephenson (centre) and Jason Stephenson (right) were discovered during a house fire in Nanaimo on October 10, 2017. Police later said they had no knowledge of a fight before the fire, and that they believed the loud noises neighbours heard were made by a passerby trying to get people to come outside.

A bystander called to report the fire in the 700 block of Nicol Street shortly after noon on Tuesday, and firefighters discovered the bodies as they tried to bring the flames under control, said Fire Chief Karen Fry.

When crews arrived at the house, the fire had spread throughout the building. He had previously worked with the company in 2010.

During a news conference on Wednesday morning, RCMP said that the three people killed were a family but did not confirm their identities. Jon Stuart of the Nanaimo RCMP said.

Asked why the child would have been home on a regular school day, Stuart said it wasn't a Pro-D day and investigators don't have answers as to why she was at the home.

There is nothing to suggest anyone else was involved in the fire, but it is being considered suspicious until a point of origin is determined. Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools has been notified about the fire.

"There was a report yesterday that there was some kind of altercation at the residence prior to police getting there... turns out that was a passer-by that had spotted the fire who was there to raise the alarm", Stuart explains.

The victims include two adults and a seven-year-old girl, according to RCMP, and the serious crime unit is investigating.

The cause of the fire and the cause of the family's deaths are under investigation.

"An investigation like this does take time, because we take it slow and we try to do it as methodically as possible", said Stuart.
