Police are investigating multiple overnight car fires in Metro Vancouver.
BURNABY -- Police are investigating several car fires in Metro Vancouver that occurred overnight Sunday into Monday morning.
Burnaby Fire Department were on scene of a fully involved vehicle fire in a parking lot on Fraser Park Drive and Byrne Road.
The incident happened around 11:30 p.m., Sunday. Flames engulfed the vehicle, which made it unrecognizable. The vehicle did not appear to have licence plates.
When the flames were knocked down, Burnaby RCMP flooded the area, and officers cordoned it off.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is also looking into possible links the burned vehicle might have to a fatal shooting in Surrey.
One hour later around 12:50 a.m., Maple Ridge Fire and Rescue received a call for a vehicle fire at the 11400 block of 232 Street. Crews found a fully involved vehicle on fire.
Roughly 20 minutes later, another vehicle was found on fire at the 11900 block of 220 Street. All fires were knocked down, and are being considered suspicious in nature at this time.
CTV News has reached out to Burnaby and Ridge Meadows RCMP for more information.
