According to police, five separate incidents have been reported between April 11th and September 26th.
Police believe all the blazes are related.
“The investigation is ongoing and the police would love to speak with anybody who may have some information regarding these arsons and are urged to contact the RCMP or Crime Stoppers,” said Cpl. Madonna Saunderson with the North District RCMP to MyNechakoValleyNow.com.
