Police in Cranbrook are investigating two suspected arsons in less than a week’s time.
RCMP responded to a vehicle fire in the Gold Creek area on Tuesday, March 7th. They found a burned out truck about 10 kilometers outside of town.
Constable Katie Forgeron says another vehicle fire was reported only two days later, this time on 21st Avenue in Cranbrook.
“We haven’t found anything at this time to suggest that they are related, but having two vehicle fires so close together definitely puts that in our mind that maybe they are connected, Forgeron says. “But as of this point, we have nothing directly linking them.”
The Forensic Identification Unit located items at the second fire that suggest it could have been intentionally set.
