Ottawa fire kills five above grocery store
By Bruce CHEADLE, Canadian Press
Ottawa -- A Cambodian grocer lost his wife and four children as fire swept the apartment over their store yesterday. Officials say the fire, which left three other family members critically burned, was Ottawa's worst in at least 40 years.
witnesses: said heroic efforts by Bacara THACH, the family patriarch, helped save his 14-month-old grand_son Sipheng from the flat over his small grocery.
Fire crews were on the scene in moments and also saved the child's father, THACH's son-in-law, who arrived in Canada three weeks ago. All three were listed in critical condition yesterday in hospital.
Dead are Kol Yan THACH, her daughter, Lily, 23, and three sons Gary, 14, Danny, 13, and Sunny, 12, according to tearful Friends and neighbours gathered near the Mekong Grocery in Ottawa's Chinatown.
"The identity of those victims is not official," cautioned Staff Sgt. Monique ACKLAND.
Autopsies are to be performed today. Fire officials began combing through the wreckage yesterday seeking the fire's cause.
The five dead were pulled from the burning building by firefighters but died at the scene, said officials.
"The firefighters went in four times, at risk of their own lives, in the face of a fully engulfed building to try and rescue the people," Ottawa police Chief Vince BEVAN said.
Family friend Vannary PHA said the elder THACH gave his grand_son to a neighbour, then tried to re-enter the flat.
"The father got burned trying to go back in," PHA said.
Across the street from the tiny store, a steady stream of hollow-eyed Friends came to gaze at the carnage, some leaving photos and flowers.
"We had a party last Saturday with him," said Than Pennsylvania, a friend of Bacara THACH's and fellow member of a Cambodian community association. "Now they're all dead."
Firefighters were less than two blocks away at another blaze when the fire erupted just before 2 a.m.
Some power in the area had been cut because of the original fire, but officials could not confirm the THACH household was affected.
But Trevor BAIN of the Ontario Fire Marshall's office said it appears the THACH fire started in a front bedroom of the apartment, not the store below. Some neighbours were suggesting a candle ignited the blaze.
