Po­lice in Flower’s Cove are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help in its in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a “sus­pi­cious” fire of a fish­ing shed in St. Barbe.

The Royal Cana­dian Mounted Po­lice re­ceived the re­port of the fire in the North­ern Penin­sula com­mu­nity just be­fore 9:30 p.m. on June 16.

Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease is­sued last week, the fire was ex­tin­guished upon ar­rival at the scene.

There was just min­i­mal dam- age to the shed near the town’s wharf, re­ported the RCMP, and no­body was in­jured.

Po­lice are treat­ing the fire as sus­pi­cious, and ask­ing any­body with in­for­ma­tion or who may have seen sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity in the area around the time of the fire to con­tact the Flower’s Cove RCMP at (709) 456-2500.

Anony­mous in­for­ma­tion can be pro­vided to Crime Stop­pers at www.nl­crimestop­pers. com, 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or text TIP190 + your mes­sage to ‘CRIMES’ (274637).
