Smoke inhalation killed infant boy rescued from Edmonton house fire, autopsy finds
Mother remains in hospital with life-threatening injuries
A five-month-old boy pulled from an arson fire Tuesday in southwest Edmonton died of smoke inhalation, an autopsy has found.
His mother remains in hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said in a news release Wednesday afternoon.
Six other people, ranging from a five-year-old child to a 58-year-old man, were taken to hospital.
Homicide detectives continue to investigate, police said.
No suspects are in custody.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the boy's parents.
"Hunter turned five months old the day before he was taken by the house fire," the fundraising page says.
"He was a beautiful baby who lit up our lives with his smiles and giggles, and his happy squawks."
