Police investigating after bodies found in burned home

March 21, 2018, Springhill. N.S. - Nova Scotia RCMP say two bodies have been recovered from a home near Springhill that was damaged Tuesday in what they are calling a suspicious fire.

No details have been released about the victims.

Cumberland District RCMP say they responded to a call for help from Beaton's Lane just before 4:30 p.m.

Volunteer fire chief Stanley Hunter says fire caused internal damage to the home, but was extinguished quickly.

He says the Nova Scotia fire marshal's office is investigating and police have secured the scene.

The Medical Examiner's Service has also been called in, and the RCMP's major crimes unit is investigating.

"We have not determined the nature of it," Hunter says. "We put the fire out and the RCMP are in charge of it now."
