RCMP Investigate Suspicious Fires in St. Stephen

St. Stephen RCMP are investigating a rash of suspicious fires that have occured over the past three days. The latest was a car set ablaze this morning in the town curling club parking lot around 3:30am. This is the 14th car to be set on fire since Canada Day. Fire crews responded to a fire on Route 127 in Waweig on July first where a vacant building was completely destroyed. A second fire the same day resulted in 12 cars being destroyed at a garage in Tower Hill, and then a vehicle belonging to a member of the Rollingdam Fire Department was stolen and later found burned-out in Elmsville.

Last night a structure at Camp Waweig was completely destroyed by fire. RCMP believe all five fires are connected. Mounties are asking for the public's help with any information about the suspected arsons.
