Lewis County Sheriff’s Office Investigates Fire and Deaths in Glenoma
The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation into a fire and related deaths in the Glenoma area. 9-1-1 was contacted at approximately 0323 hours by multiple callers who observed a fire at a residence in the 100 block of Frost Creek Road in Glenoma. Fire personnel from the Glenoma, Randle, Morton, and Mossyrock responded and later requested a fire investigator and law enforcement, as it was believed the three residents of the home were inside at the time of the fire.
Sheriff’s Office personnel responded, and once the fire cooled, they were able to confirm there were three deceased individuals inside the residence. Detectives are working alongside fire investigators from the City of Chehalis, as well as the Lewis County Coroner’s Office to determine the cause and manner of death, as well as the cause and origin of the fire. The decedents have not been identified at this time, once identification and next of kin notification is made, identities will be released by the Lewis County Coroner’s Office.
“This is a tragic situation, and we are working diligently with our public safety partners to find answers for the family and our community,” said Sheriff Rob Snaza.
