School buses torched

A suspicious fire destroyed private schools buses on Vancouver Island, early Friday.

According to CTV News, crews from the North Cowichan Fire Department were called out to the Mid Island Bus lot about 4 a.m.

Crews were able to extinguish the blaze, but not before three buses were destroyed, and two others suffered significant damage.

"We were deeply saddened to receive news this morning about the fire," owner Marilyn Smith told CTV. "We are definitely very thankful for the support of the community, the RCMP, and the firefighters who came so quickly to the fire."

The Cowichan Valley School District is coming to the aid of the private schools by making some of its buses available.
