A Kinngait house fire that injured a man and two young people is considered suspicious, the RCMP say.

Police were called to a fire in the 3000 block of Kinngait at 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, according to an RCMP news release issued Friday.

Officers and bystanders were able to put out the fire but not before three people were injured, requiring medical attention. They were released on Monday.

The investigation is ongoing, police said, but they have already deemed it to be suspicious.

The police report did not provide the ages of the people who were injured, the genders of the two young people, or the nature of the injuries.

In the report, police also included a reminder to community members to report suspicious activity by contacting their RCMP detachment, calling Crime Stoppers or submitting a tip on its secure website.

    They don’t even have a reliable fire crew, so much that the RCMP become firefighters. No wonder the GN is taking over their municipal operations. Sad!

      So no doubt things are a mess but a small fire being put out by the first people to arrive instead of waiting for the volunteer firefighters to get the truck and get to the fire is a good thing
