Acting Detachment Commander Corp. Martin Giguere said that while so far there is “no nexus between this fire and other ones in town,” the investigation is still ongoing.

“We have no lead at this point and are hoping someone in the community saw something suspicious around the time of the fire or that a business nearby may have video surveillance pointing to the area of the porta-potties that could offer a lead.”

The porta-potties were lit on fire early in the morning on June 13. It was around 3:55 a.m. when Port Hardy Fire Rescue received the call regarding the fire and went to extinguish it.
