Seymour Sergeant Daniel Raynor says the Arson and Explosives Squad is investigating the cause of the deadly blaze.

"Detectives are still speaking to those family members (in hospital) to try to ascertain the exact occurrences," he told reporters in Tyaak.

"Obviously given the extremely tragic circumstances and the situation that we now have, those conversations and those investigations, I dare say, will be ongoing for some time."
