OROVILLE — A Canadian man who was living in an RV in Oroville for the winter was apparently killed in a fire early Saturday.

Cornelius D. Friesen, 84, of Glenbush, Saskatchewan, was discovered inside the RV after firefighters extinguished the blaze, said Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers.

Authorities responded to 1000 23rd Ave. at the Prince’s Center just after 4 a.m., and found the trailer fully involved, he said.

Investigators say a space heater apparently sparked the fire, Rogers said.
