RCMP investigating possible arson Thursday night

The Fort St. John RCMP are investigating an overnight fire near Walmart in Fort St. John. Shortly before midnight Thursday, the RCMP received a request to assist the Fort St. John Fire Department with a report of a fire behind Walmart.

 

The Fort St. John Fire Department was able to contain the fire to stacked materials behind the building.  The building sustained considerable damage to the exterior as the result of the intense heat.

The incident is being treated as suspicious and police believe the fire was set deliberately.
