Victoria, BC – Investigators are asking for public assistance in gathering information related to two suspicious dumpers fires in Victoria early this morning.

Shortly after 2 a.m. this morning, Patrol officers responded to two separate dumpster fires in the 1200-block of Pandora Avenue. The Victoria Fire Department was on scene and had already extinguished both fires, which were in close proximity to one another.
