Provincial police have identified the victim of a fatal fire last week at a trailer park in Port Bruce and say nothing about the death and fire appears to be suspicious.
It was around 6:30 a.m. on Sept. 20 when Elgin OPP officers and members of Malahide Township Fire Services were called to the Bee Lin Trailer Park at 49508 Dexter Line for a call of a mobile trailer fire, police said.
At the scene, fire crews managed to keep the blaze contained to the lone trailer. Inside the trailer, police located a deceased 50-year-old male.
Police on Wednesday identified the victim as Timothy James of Malahide Township. A post mortem was conducted on Sept. 21, police said.
The cause of the trailer fire has not yet been released, though the Ontario Fire Marshall was called to the scene to investigate.
Two nearby trailers sustained minor fire damage, police said. No other physical injuries were reported.
