Police fear more bodies lost in Hamilton house fire

By Ripeka Timutimu

A search and rescue team will return to the scene of a deadly blaze which engulfed a Hamilton property yesterday fearing more bodies will be found after three young people were killed.

Work to strengthen the house continued today, which will enable firemen to get in and recover the bodies.

Police were disappointed that some media outlets had released the names of those who had lost their lives in the fire, and say they won't know final numbers until their investigations have finished.

But the big question still remains on how this tragedy occurred.

It is believed that a gathering was held at the property to welcome one of the new house mates.

Police are now calling on those who attended the celebrations at the house to come forward and inform them of what may have happened that night.
