A fire that started in a storage unit above the law offices of Charles Beckingham and Co. on Argyle Street in Port Alberni is being treated as suspicious.
On Oct. 20, shortly after 6 p.m. Port Alberni RCMP, Port Alberni Fire Department and BC Ambulance responded to a fire at 5021 Argyle St., in a residential area above the law offices.
The fire was contained to a storage unit and although there were no injuries, three people were displaced because of the incident, RCMP Sgt. Clay Wiebe said.
No arrests have been made to date; police are still investigating, Wiebe said.
One woman who said she lost her home due to the fire was trying to get a room at the Port Alberni Shelter (Our Home on Eighth) on Friday, Oct. 22 because she had nowhere else to go.
