Mission house fire considered suspicious

Residence on 14th Avenue was engulfed in flame of Wednesday evening.

Mission firefighters were called out to a suspicious residential blaze on Wednesday night.

At about 8 p.m., a 911 call came in regarding a fire in the 32000 block of 14th Avenue. When crews arrived they discovered the home was fully involved.

“There was fire coming out from the front and rear of the building and through the roof,” said fire chief Larry Watkinson.

Firefighters managed to contain the blaze quickly and no one was hurt in the incident.

The chief said no one was home at the time of the fire.

More than 30 firefighters and six pieces of apparatus were on scene.

“We did find that there had been forcible entry and there was sources of hydrocarbons detected. So  the fire was fueled by some kind of hydrocarbon that was left inside the structure,” said Watkinson.

“So the fire is suspicious and malicious in nature,” he added.

RCMP are now investigating.
