The Regina Police Service, in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Coroners Service and Regina Fire and Protective Services, is investigating the discovery of a deceased person after a residence fire early this morning (Thursday).
Police were dispatched to assist Regina Fire and Protective Services at approximately 1:52 a.m. on Thursday, February 24, 2022. Officers made their way to the 2700 block of 10th Avenue. Early information indicated there was a fire at one of the residences. Officers assisted with traffic control and ensuring the safety of neighbouring residents. The officers also assisted with contacting Mobile Crisis to help the neighbours who were displaced by the fire. At about 2:15 a.m., officers were informed there was a deceased person inside the residence where the fire occurred. Police secured the scene, once firefighters had completed their work, and a Coroner was called to the scene. Investigators are still working to confirm the identity of the deceased person, who is believed to be an adult male. Once his identity is confirmed, his next-of-kin will be notified of his death. The joint investigation continues, to determine the cause of the fire and the circumstances of the victim’s death.
