The investigation has wrapped up in relation to a house fire earlier this month that claimed the life of a senior from Spruce View.

Crews from Spruce View Fire, Innisfail Fire, Red Deer County Fire and Red Deer County Technical Rescue were dispatched just before 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 2. They worked for several hours extinguishing a fire that severely damaged a home at the property.  

The lone occupant of the home, an 83-year-old man, was located deceased inside the home.

Innisfail RCMP have investigated the death and have found no evidence to suggest any further investigation is required. 

Fire investigators from Red Deer County have concluded their investigation to determine the cause of the fire. No further details have been released.
