Man Arrested For Suspected Arson After CN Rail Building Burns

The fire started Sunday afternoon and went on for hours.

The RCMP has arrested a young man suspected of setting a CN Rail building in Prince Rupert, B.C. on fire.

Starting Sunday afternoon, the fire burned for hours, with the building left devastated. It had been unused for a while.

While authorities are claiming the arson doesn’t seem to related to illegal blockades and fires set on railway tracks, that remains to be seen.

The timing is certainly suspicious, and Canadians will surely be awaiting word on the identity and motive of the suspect when that is released.
