Vulcan, Alberta – Today, following review of the autopsy results completed by the Medical Examiner’s office on September 29, 2015, the identity of the two victims in the fatal house fire in Vulcan are confirmed as Robert Farrow, 47, of Vulcan, Alberta and Karen Currie, 56, of Vulcan, Alberta.  The next of kin notifications have been made.
