Cumberland RCMP investigating pair of suspicious fires

AMHERST, N.S. —

The Cumberland District RCMP is asking for the public’s help in investigating two suspicious fires that occurred overnight between Jan. 3 and 4.

The fires were started at unoccupied buildings within 15 minutes of one another.

The locations of the buildings involved are 12 km apart. One was reported to the RCMP at 12:09 a.m. and the other was reported at 12:24 a.m.

Investigators believe the fires are related.

A garage on an abandoned property was burnt on the Rodney Road and an abandoned home was burnt on Highway 321 in River Philip.

The RCMP investigated suspicious fires on both properties this past summer.
