Sources indicate that the man who died in an early Sunday morning mobile home fire, in Penticton, was Matthew Lamont.
Lamont reportedly lived in the home with another individual named Tyler. It’s believed Tyler escaped the blaze with minor burns.
A dog is also said to have died in the house fire.
According to neighbours, Lamont was in his 30s and so is Tyler. The two men had lived in the home for about a year.
RCMP are still investigating the incident, which they are considering suspicious.
