The home of Rinelle Harper, a teen who was attacked in Winnipeg and left for dead last year, has burned down.

“Who would do this and why?” said an emotional Julie Harper, Rinelle’s mom.

Fire chief Mark Barkman said the call came in at 5:18 a.m. on Monday from a band constable on Garden Hill First Nation, a remote fly-in community about 500 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.

Barkman said when he got there the house was engulfed in flames. It’s located on top of a hill and it was windy that morning so the flames spread quickly, he said, adding the cause is under investigation.
