RCMP believe fire set intentionally

The RCMP in Happy Valley-Goose Bay is investigating a vehicle fire, which occurred 12:45 a.m. on July 22.

The 1997 Dodge Caravan was set aflame behind D’s Landing General Store, located on Hamilton River Road. The local fire department was called and the fire extinguished quickly.

The fire caused extensive damage however, especially to the interior, which was completely ruined.

The RCMP has determined that the vehicle was unoccupied during the fire and, in all likelihood, uninsured.

The vehicle was not reported stolen to the RCMP and, as of the morning of July 22, the cause of the fire is still unknown.

“It is always concerning when property is set on fire,” said S/Sgt Don Rogers of the Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP. “In this case we do not believe it is a random act and investigators are continuing to make inquiries to determine if a criminal offense has occurred.”
