KELOWNA – The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a woman who was found deceased following a mobile home fire in Clearwater on Dec. 1, 2016.

She was Liane Marianne McDonald, aged 61, of Clearwater.

Ms. McDonald was home alone in the mobile home where she resided in the 900-block of Mountainview Road on the evening of Dec. 1, 2016, when, shortly before 10 p.m., neighbours noticed smoke coming from the structure.

The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.
