Totem Lanes Fire investigation now in hands of RCMP
As the Prince Rupert Fire Department continues to work at the fire scene of the now burned shell of the Totem Lanes Bowling Centre, the Prince Rupert Detachment of the RCMP issued an announcement on Tuesday afternoon, advising that they are now investigating the incident, treating it as a fire suspicious in nature.
As we outlined on the blog yesterday, the blaze was first reported in the early morning hours of Monday, with the Prince Rupert Fire Department putting all of its assets into the task of knocking down the fire.
Crews remained on the scene overnight and into Tuesday, to ensure that the fire did not flare up, while the RCMP began the first stages of their investigation.
With the file now in the hands of the RCMP, members from the local detachment are asking that anyone that may have information regarding the fire contact them at 250-627-0700 or through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS)
