We now have official confirmation that the local man killed in the trailer home fire Sunday was Ryan Tapp.
The BC Coroners Service has released a statement saying 28 year old Tapp was found dead in the Fofonow Rd property in Taghum.
The fire completely destroyed the unit around 4 am.
Tapp’s body was discovered by firefighters once the intense blaze had been put out.
