Chilliwack RCMP release descriptions of two suspects in Main Street arson fire

Anyone with information on deliberately set fire to the Lock’s building Feb. 3 asked to called police

RCMP are looking for two suspects spotted in the early hours of Feb. 3 outside the Lock’s building on Main Street last week, determined to be the scene of an arson fire.

The fire is being investigated by Chilliwack Fire, and Chilliwack RCMP investigators after it was determined to be a “deliberately set fire,” said Fire Chief Ian Josephson.

RCMP have released descriptions of two persons of interest in the hopes it will help close the file.

The first person suspect was male with dark hair, dark complexion, five-foot-ten, slim, 25 to 30 years old, wearing a black hoodie under black coat with grey accents on the shoulder, white pants and red Nikes. The second suspect was female with dark hair and complexion, 40 to 50 years old, two-tone pink toque, grey shirt under dark blue coat with brown and black pants.

Chilliwack Fire Department crews were first called to the scene at 4:35 a.m. on Feb. 3, in the 9100-block of Main Street.

Crews quickly knocked down the fire that was coming from a ground-floor window, stopping the spread to the rest of the building and other businesses.

There was significant fire, smoke and water damage to one business operation, and very minor smoke damage to the remainder of the building. No one was injured.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to called police at the non-emergency line 604-792-4611, and to quote the RCMP file #2022-4110, or call anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
