Rail police seek 'person of interest' following fire
Canadian Pacific Police Service issued a plea for help Monday in identifying a person it believes is responsible for a fire on the Marpole Railway Bridge.
The span, which connects Richmond to Vancouver, caught fire at about 4:45 p.m. on July 9. Heavy smoke from the blaze forced the temporary closure of the parallel Oak Street Bridge.
Police want to speak to "a person of interest" seen leaving the area just after the fire started, according to a news release. Police are also asking for any witnesses, including any who may have taken photographs of the fire scene.
Anyone with information is asked to call Canadian Pacific Police Service at 1-800-716-9132, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Photographs and e-mails can also be sent to email@example.com.
