Surrey RCMP have arrested a man in connection with a suspicious fire overnight.
Sergeant Barry Beales says it’s believed the suspect was in contact with the people inside before flames broke out.
“My understanding is there was some kind of interaction between the person we have in custody and the owners of the residence.”
“We currently have one man in custody. The residents pointed out an individual that was of concern.”
Firefighters arrived at the home on 142nd Street near Grosvenor Road around 1 a.m. to find it completely engulfed.
Everyone inside was able to escape safely.
Fire investigators are now combing the scene for evidence.
