The remains of three victims have been recovered from the scene of a residential fire in Winlock as investigators continue to search for a cause of the blaze.
According to the Winlock Police Department, who are heading up the investigation, the bodies of a woman and her two daughters were recovered this afternoon after their house at 807 NE First St. suddenly caught fire at around 2:30 a.m. The remains are currently in the custody of the Lewis County Coroner's Office, who are expected to confirm their identities and causes of death in the coming days.
Members of the Winlock community gave a strong showing of support during a candlelight vigil held Thursday night to remember a family who lost loved ones during a house fire earlier that day.
A large crowd gathered around the World's Largest Egg at Vern Zander Memorial Park, but not for celebration as they have in the past. They instead spoke of the importance of family and community, and how many of them will miss the mother and two daughters who perished in the fire.
