Four generations of happy family memories ended early Thursday morning at a cabin in B.C.’s southern Interior.

EAGLE BAY, B.C. — Four generations of happy family memories ended early Thursday morning at a cabin in B.C.’s southern Interior.

The Shuswap Lake cabin, on property owned by the Collier family of Kamloops, B.C., burned to the ground, killing three children inside.

The family has issued a statement identifying the young victims as 14-year-old Fergus Conway, his 10-year-old sister, Phoebe, and their 14-year-old cousin, Azra Young.

All three children are from Vancouver.

The statement also says the cabin, on Eagle Bay, along the southern shore of Shuswap Lake, east of Kamloops, has been owned by the family for four generations.

RCMP and fire investigators returned to the scene Friday, searching for what caused the blaze.
