Mounties say a 66-year-old woman has died and a 13-year-old boy is clinging to life after a suspicious house fire in Richmond.
Sgt. Stephanie Ashton with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says investigators found the body in the home, and the teen was taken to hospital in critical condition.
The pair is believe to be related.
A male suspect was taken into custody shortly after the blaze broke out around 2am.
“He was arrested earlier today, they are attempting to find out more information, however at this time no charges have been laid, so I can’t speak to too much about the person in custody.”
The suspect arrested by police did not live in the home.
The cause of the fire has still not been released.
