Terrace RCMP are investigating a suspicious structure fire in Thornhill that resulted in over $200,000 damage on Saturday morning April 12.

"It is fortunate that the homeowners woke up when they did and nobody was injured in this fire," said Constable Angela Rabut.

"The cause of the fire is undetermined. If anybody has any information about this incident contact the Terrace RCMP immediately," she said.

Terrace RCMP were called to assist Thornhill Fire Department with a structure fire on the morning of April 12 in the 3600 block of Larch Ave.

The homeowners were asleep when a loud noise was heard at approximately 6:15 a.m. The homeowner discovered the nearby shop completely engulfed in flames. The fire spread to parts of the house and damage is likely beyond repair.

The shop and contents, two quads inside of the shop, and two vehicles parked in front were completed destroyed. A third vehicle parked in front sustained damage. A nearby residence also sustained minor damage from the heat.

People with information on this incident are asked to contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at www.terracecrimestoppers.ca or by texting TERRACE plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES). If your information leads to an arrest you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2000.
