Exclusive video shows wreckage left by fire that tore though B.C. village
As much as 90 per cent of the B.C. village of Lytton was destroyed when a fire swept through it.
Video captured during a drive through the area and obtained by CTV News Vancouver shows the extent of the damage to the community of about 250 people.
The B.C. Coroners Service said it knows of a report of two people who may have died in the fire. On Friday afternoon, the province's chief coroner said a team was standing by, but that it was too dangerous to inspect the area at that time.
It is not yet confirmed whether those two people have died, nor is it known how many people are unaccounted for.
