Suspicious fires in Clayton area

Three fires in Cloverdale between 3 and 5 a.m. Sunday morning appear to have been intentionally set.

Nobody was injured but there was extensive property damage to the front entrances of the residences involved. In two cases, Halloween decorations were set on fire.

The first fire was at a townhome in the 6900-block of 188 Street, where a suspicious fire was reported at about 3:30 a.m. Oct. 28.

About an hour later, Surrey RCMP were called to another suspicious fire at a residence in the 6600 block of 187A Street. The home’s occupants called the fire department after smelling smoke.

At 5 a.m., police were called out to a third residence in the 6400 block of 189 Street, where another homeowner smelled smoke and called the fire department.
