Three separate fires within two hours early Tuesday are believed by RCMP officials to be arsons.
A garage was set on fire on Margaret Avenue at about 1:40 a.m., and at 3:20 a.m. police were called to a bush fier on Coventry Place. At 3:32 a.m. another bush fire was reported at the corner of McIntosh Avenue and Hocking Avenue.
“In both bush fire incidences, the bushes were in very close proximity to a building or structure,” Const. Tracy Wolbeck said.
“Although the damage in these three cases was minimal the potential is enormous if they continue,” she said.
The RCMP investigation continues.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
