Two storage units and two vehicles were damaged in the fire. No injuries were reported.

Deputy Fire Chief Dan Atkinson says the fire was determined to be suspicious because of the spacing between the vehicles and the storage unit that were destroyed. “There was no direct link between the fires,” he said.

Police are asking anyone with information on these fires to call 250-995-7654 or report anonymously by calling Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
