Suspicious death under investigation following Six Roads house fire

The New Brunswick RCMP Major Crime Unit is investigating a suspicious death after the discovery of a body following a fire in Six Roads.

The body was located following a search of the debris on Monday, with police saying one person who was believed to be inside at the time of the fire is unaccounted for.

The RCMP were called to the scene on Route 150 shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Sunday and say the house was completely engulfed when officers arrived.

A man was able to get out of the home and was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

A 19-year-old man from Tracadie was taken into custody near the house shortly after police arrived.

He's been remanded into custody until a court appearance Tuesday, and police say charges are anticipated.
