MN dad and 2 kids die in RV fire at Grand Canyon

]MN dad and 2 kids die in RV fire at Grand Canyon | kare11.com
OAKDALE, Minn. -- A young father from the east metro and his two children are dead after a fire ravaged their RV just outside of Grand Canyon National Park on Monday morning.
Thirty-five-year old Tony DeHaven and his children Jace and Jersey DeHaven were in the RV when it started on fire. Investigators say the vehicle was fully engulfed fire when they arrived.
Shannan Marcak, a spokeswoman for Grand Canyon, said investigators were able to enter the RV after the fire was put out to find the victims but that there is no more information about the fire.
A suspected cause of the fire may be released Wednesday afternoon.
DeHaven worked for a local flooring company here in the Twin Cities, and his children were students at Skyview School in Oakdale.
Jace was in the 6th grade and Jersey was in kindergarten. Counselors were on hand Wednesday to help students deal with the loss of their classmates.
In a letter sent home to parents on Tuesday, Skyview Middle School Principal Christina Hester said:
"It is with deep sorrow that we inform you of the passing of two Skyview students and their father. Early Monday morning, Jace and Jersey DeHaven and their father died in an RV fire while on vacation in Arizona. The accident that tragically took the lives of two of our students has deeply affected the entire Skyview community. Students were informed about the passing of their classmates this afternoon and extra staff members were on hand to offer support to students who needed to speak with a caring adult."
Skyview elementary is the same school shaken by a double murder-suicide involving the parents of a Skyview student.
The fire is under investigation by the F.B.I., the National Park Service and the Flagstaff Arizona Fire Department

Wow that sucks, If the guy committed suicide that's bad enough , and if he took the kids he's just a piece of TURD. The economy sucks but not that bad.

Heart-wrenching. I will pray for the family, and the children's mother.
