2-year-old dies in Bonner County motorhome fire

Undersheriff says criminal charges possible

A 2-year-old girl died in a fire that consumed a motorhome Tuesday night in Oldtown, Idaho.

Genevieve Winn was alone inside the camper when the fire ripped through it around 8 p.m. The incident took place at 4038 Hoo Doo Loop.

Bonner County Undersheriff David Hale said several adults were at or near the camper and were unharmed. He said criminal charges may be filed if investigators determine one of them is at fault for Winn’s death.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but preliminary information suggests it may have started with electrical wiring, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The fire destroyed the motorhome but did not spread. Detectives and county Coroner’s Office officials were at the scene through the night and into the morning.
