With the smoke clearing around the Edson Honda dealership after yesterday morning’s fire, police and fire officials, along with the insurance company, have opened an investigation into the cause of the blaze.
While police say it is still too early to tell if the fire is suspicious or if it is linked to the December 9th fire at Edson Chrysler, Edson RCMP gave an update Monday afternoon on the Chrysler fire.
Police have confirmed that the fire that destroyed the Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealership has been deemed arson by fire investigators and that a vehicle fire the same day had also been intentionally set. The investigation continues.
The extent of damages is still not known in the Honda dealership fire, as that investigation gets underway.
Police are asking anyone that may have been in the area of the Honda dealership around 4 am on Monday and seen anything suspicious to contact Edson RCMP at 780-723-8822 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
