Two Chilliwack fires blamed on arson

Two fires early Friday morning in Sardis were deliberately set, says the Chilliwack Fire Department.

Both were quickly extinguished, and there were no injuries. However, fire officials and RCMP have launched investigations.

The first fire was reported at around 3:20 a.m. in the 55000 block of Chinook Street in a new subdivision north of Webster Landing. When firefighters arrived they found a construction vehicle on fire. Once that fire was out, they noticed an orange glow coming from the second floor of a duplex under construction.

On further investigation they found a fire on the second floor that they quickly extinguished. There was fire damage to the floor sheeting and smoke damage to the attic area.

 

These fires were deliberately set and are under investigation by Chilliwack Fire Department and RCMP fire investigators.

If anyone has any information about these fires, they are asked to call the RCMP at 604-792-4611 or anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.chilliwackcrimestoppers.ca
