A little over a month after a devastating fire wreaked havoc on a popular outdoors shop, Saanich Police has confirmed that it is being investigated as a case of arson.

Just after 6:30 a.m. on January 4th, police and firefighters attended the scene of a major fire at Island Outfitters, a hunting and fishing gear store located at 3319 Douglas Street.

Luckily, as the store was closed at the time, no one was injured as a result of the blaze.

However a large amount of damage to the building and store inventory caused the 25-year-old business to temporarily shut down.

“We want to sincerely thank you for your outreach and support over the last month. Insurance is a timely process, and although we do not have a set time frame yet, we will be re-opening and getting back to the business we all love,” reads a Facebook post from Island Outfitters.

Saanich Police confirmed on Thursday that they are now treating the fire as a case of arson after concluding that the fire was set deliberately.

In the wake of this investigation, Island Outfitters has shared a series of images showing what the business looks like in the aftermath of the incident.
