7 Pakistanis die in house fire east of Canada’s Calgary

ALGARY: Seven Pakistanis, including four children, died in a Canadian city when their house caught fire, police said Friday prompting concerns from the community whether it was a result of Islamophobia.

According to the police, the blaze tore through the home in Chestermere, just east of Calgary, at about 2:30am following Canada Day celebrations.

Three adults and four children ranging in age from four to 12 died in the fire, they said.

Cpl. Tammy Keibel said a boy and a girl, both 12, an eight-year-old girl, and a four-year-old boy perished in the fire. A man and a woman both thought to be 38 years old and another woman approximately age 35 also died.
