The Southeast District RCMP, Riverview detachment, is investigating three complaints of vehicles destroyed by fire.

On November, 18, 2017, around 7:30 a.m., police responded to a report of two vehicles on fire along the Buckley Road in Harewood, near Salisbury. The two owners parked their vehicles around 6:45 a.m. to go hunting. When they returned approximately 30 minutes later, both vehicles had been destroyed by fire.

In all three cases, the fires are believed to have been deliberately set. The investigations are continuing and it's unknown at this time if the fires are connected.
