Nova Scotia RCMP seeking public’s help following suspicious fires in Cumberland County

Cumberland County, Nova Scotia – Cumberland District RCMP is asking for the public’s help to identify individual(s) who may be responsible for several structural fires in Cumberland County.

Since February 2018, there have been reports of approximately 10 fires at unoccupied properties in the Collingwood area and beyond. The majority of the properties were destroyed or resulted in a significant amount of damage. Cumberland District RCMP is working with partners at local fire departments to investigate the incidents.

“These fires take up a lot of resources and we’re concerned that someone will eventually get hurt,” says S/Sgt. Craig Learning with Cumberland District RCMP. “Investigations of this nature can be complex and difficult to solve so we’re really hoping someone out there knows something and will come forward.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Springhill RCMP at 902-597-3770.

The investigation is ongoing.
