The chief of an area First Nation still reeling after losing five people to a deadly house fire is demanding a public apology from the Children’s Aid Society of London & Middlesex.

Oneida Nation of the Thames Chief Randall Phillips said he also wants someone from the organization fired for actions of a child welfare worker.

On Dec. 14, a house fire killed Oneida resident Kurt Antone and four of his sons, including an infant. Surviving members of the family include the boys’ mom and four more children.

After the fire, Phillips said he had his executive director contact London CAS to ask them “to say, ‘hey we’ve got a disaster here, would you please hold off with respect to anything that’s going on with this particular situation?’”
