Five young Cree hunters die in remote Quebec fire

Five men are reportedly dead following a cabin fire in Mistissini, a remote Cree community about 800 km north of Montreal.

A snowmobiler discovered a cabin devastated by the fire Wednesday afternoon near Lake Bussy, according to Quebec provincial police, although when the fire occurred isn’t clear.

“At a time of such unfathomable loss, we can only express our deepest sympathies to the families, and pray that the knowledge of the full support of the entire Cree Nation will help in some way in providing comfort and easing the terrible pain they are suffering,” Grand Chief Matthew Coon Come of the Grand Council of the Crees said in a statement.

“May their memories be a blessing and a source of sustenance as we collectively come to terms with this frightful occurrence.”
