The North Vancouver RCMP are investigating two structure fires that occurred early Sunday morning and are asking for any witnesses to come forward.

Just before 4 am on November 6th, 2022, North Vancouver RCMP were notified of structure fire in the 3000 block of Mt Seymour Pkwy. North Vancouver District Fire Rescue Services (DNFRS) worked to contain the blaze as traffic was reduced to one lane in each direction on Mt Seymour Pkwy.

The residence is an abandoned house and it is believed that there was no one inside. During the course of the initial investigation, the fire was deemed suspicious and investigators from RCMP and DNFRS are working together to determine its cause.

We are in the very early stages of this investigation, says Cst. Mansoor Sahak of the North Vancouver RCMP. As the investigation unfolds, we will gain a better understanding the cause of these fires and determine if they were in fact result of arson.

North Vancouver RCMP are asking that anyone with information about these fires to contact them. We’re asking anyone who may have video surveillance, or who may have witnessed anything suspicious near these locations to please contact us at 604-985-1311.

A second, unrelated fire occurred just before 6:30 am on the same day. RCMP were notified of the blaze after DNFRS responded to a fire at a residence in the 1200 block of Airlynn Pl. This second fire was believed to have been caused by an occupant of the home, and police do not believe criminality was involved.
