Suspicious fires investigated

Abbotsford police are investigating five fires that struck the city in less than 48 hours.

Const. Ian MacDonald says officers have not determined if the incidents are linked but is calling the timing and location of the blazes suspicious.

He says that all of the fires were started in the city's central region during early morning hours.

Three suspicious fires were reported on April 16, and two more occurred today.

MacDonald says residents were evacuated, but no one was injured during any of the blazes.
