An early morning fire that destroyed a van in the Brookswood neighbourhood of Langley on Saturday (Oct. 5) is considered “suspicious,” according to Langley RCMP Staff Sergeant David Brown.
He said police were canvassing the area.
It appeared the van, a 2004 Ford Econoline 350, had been abandoned in the area, left parked on the curb near 204 Street and 37B Avenue.
Two vehicles were spotted leaving the scene around the time of the fire, which was reported around 6:40 a.m.
One witness, who did not want to be named, told the Langley Advance Times a large dark-coloured pickup truck, possibly a Dodge Ram, was seen fleeing the neighbourhood.
Multiple units of the Langley fire department responded to the scene and quickly extinguished the blaze.
Anyone who has information that might assist with the police investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. To remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers.
There are two ways to leave a tip with Crime Stoppers.
