File # Campbell River RCMP 2017-10578

On September 18th at 2:00 AM the Campbell River RCMP responded to a report of a fire at a residence on South Alder Street.

The occupants there reported that they were awoken by a loud noise and shortly thereafter heard smoke alarms. One occupant went out to investigate and saw a fire by the door. The quick thinking occupant was able to extinguish the fire with a water hose.

Attending Fire officials and Police determined that the fire was deliberately set. This is the third similar instance over the past year at the same location and clearly was a targeted event.

The actions of those responsible are of very serious concern. If the fire was not discovered at the time the potential existed for the loss of lives. The matters are being actively investigated.

The current occupants at the address are new to the home and not the target of the attack.

Police are asking anyone with information about this crime to contact the Campbell River RCMP at

250-286-6221 or Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477.
