Red Cross Concerned About New Osnaburgh

New Osnaburgh First Nation remains in a state of emergency as the community has difficulty dealing with a February 13th fatal fire.

A mother, her two young daughters and her nephew perished in the blaze.

A team from the Canadian Red Cross is in the community this week to assess the situation and Spokesperson Tracey Browne says this is a groundbreaking visit.

Browne says the ultimate goal is developing a plan to improve the quality of life in New Osnaburgh and determining what services various agencies should be offering.
