Firefighters from all three Saanich Fire stations worked to combat multiple fires at Camosun College Interurban campus, Victoria Buzz has learned.
Sources say multiple Saanich Fire engines were on site, responding to a 3-alarm structure fire at approximately 2:15 a.m. on Sunday morning. BC Hydro, Saanich Police, and K9 units were also at the scene.
Further reports state that fires were ablaze in multiple structures across Camosun’s Interurban campus, and that officers are investigating a smashed window in one of the buildings.
The fires are believed to be arson. One man was arrested near the campus by the Saanich Police canine unit.
The Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence facility sustained extensive smoke and water damage.
Victoria Buzz has reached out to Saanich Police for details and confirmation.
