Police in Kamloops are investigating after a suspicious fire on Monday morning claimed the life of a woman.

Around 3:40 a.m., police were called to the 800-block Grant Road after Kamloops Fire Rescue pulled a woman from a home that was fully engulfed by flames.

The woman was taken to a local hospital and treated for life-threatening injuries but has since died.

No information has been released about the woman’s identity.

Kamloops RCMP also arrested two teen boys in the area shortly following the fire though it remains unclear whether the pair are connected to the fire. They have since been released but remain under investigation.

Police remain on scene Tuesday and will be combing the scene for clues. Investigators are treating the fire as suspicious and are asking anyone with information about the fire to contact police at 1-250-828-3000.
