An 83-year-old woman’s body was found in the rubble of a house fire near Hollow Glen on April 7.
According to a City of Gatineau Fire Department report, firefighters responded to the fire at a Chemin Klock home around 3:20 a.m.
According to a later City of Gatineau Police report, an autopsy will be performed to confirm the woman’s identity.
Three other residents were displaced and taken into the care of The Red Cross, and the fire is now being investigated by the City of Gatineau Police. The cause of fire is unknown but police don’t suspect wrongdoing.
This is the second reported house fire in the first week of April in the Hollow Glen area. A home burned at the corner of Chemins de la Paix and du Vent early in the morning of April 1, which left three without a home and sent a Chelsea Fire Department firefighter to the hospital.
