A B-C death review panel has made three recommendations to prevent children dying in house fires. The panel convened by the B-C Coroners' Service found children younger than 10 are more likely to be killed, especially in overcrowded houses or where adults smoke. Michael Egilson heads the Child Death Review Unit that examined the circumstances that killed 34 children and teens in 22 separate incidents over a decade. (Recommendations from the review include more community partnerships to get smoke alarms in homes and for fire departments to share more data.)
