PARRSBORO - An arson investigation continues into a weekend fire that destroyed a local landmark, the former Berry's Restaurant.
The Willow Street building, which has been vacant since the restaurant closed several years ago, was severely damaged by fire early Saturday morning. The call came in at 1:33 a.m., and the Parrsboro Fire Department and local RCMP responded within minutes.
"We've interviewed a lot of people, as there was a lot out and about that night watching the high tide in the area, and there was a considerable amount of people on the go," said Const. Dal Hutchinson of the Cumberland RCMP. "However we have no leads and no suspects at this time. The investigation is still ongoing."
The fire was determined to be arson after an investigation by the Nova Scotia Fire Marshal's office.
Parrsboro RCMP are asking if anyone has any information about this crime to contact them at 902-254-2424 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
