Another "deliberately set" fire strikes Stanley Park
A "suspicious" overnight fire in Stanley Park has destroyed a Vancouver park board truck, and damaged two other vehicles and a tool shed.
Arson investigators from the Vancouver Police Department and Vancouver Fire and Rescue Service are looking at the incident, which caused an estimated $70,000 in property damage.
The fire took place on park board property next to the Vancouver Police Mounted Unit and the Triple A Horse and Carriage stables.
"Investigators have determined that the fire was deliberately set and are continuing the investigation. Police are working closely with Park staff and officers will be conducting stepped-up patrols in Stanley Park and surrounding areas," a statement from Const. Lindsey Houghton, a spokesperson for the VPD, reads.
Last week, a suspicious fire tore through the ticket station at the Stanley Park miniature railway.
