OFFICIALS continue to investigate two fires late Aug. 16 which destroyed two abandoned buildings in Terrace, B.C.

The first was reported shortly after 10 p.m. at an abandoned building on the 4700 Block of Park Ave. and the second an hour later at the former CN bunkhouse and warehouse behind the Best Western.

The Park Ave. building in earlier days had been a daycare centre but has been empty for years and became a gathering place for homeless and others.

The former CN building was also known as a gathering place for homeless people and others and had already been partially destroyed during a June daytime fire.

By mid day yesterday, the Park Ave. building had been knocked down, leaving a large pile of rubble.

Terrace RCMP are asking for information, reminding people they can call the detachment 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.
