As we outlined earlier today on the blog, the Prince Rupert RCMP is currently investigating an early morning fire on the Prince Rupert waterfront, which saw three vehicles in total damaged as part of the blaze near the Metlakatla Ferry Dock.

The seriousness of the incident from this morning is such that the Metlakatla First Nation has offered a $1,000 dollar reward for information that leads to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the fire in the early hours of February 25th.

As well, the Metlakatla First Nation provided more background to the incident, noting that two vans and a pick up truck were burned during the course of the incident, one of the vans belonging to Metlakatla elders.

If you have any information related to this incident or other acts of vandalism around the Metlakatla Ferry Dock area you are asked to contact the RCMP at 250-627-0700 or  at Crimestoppers toll free number of 1-800-222-8477.

More background on the Reward can be found from the Metlakatla First Nation website
