A devastating White Rock fire that left more than 100 people homeless has been deemed suspicious, RCMP confirmed Wednesday.

On May 15, just after 5 a.m., White Rock RCMP and fire crews responded to reports of a fire in the 15200 block of Royal Avenue.

The inferno broke out in a condo complex under construction and quickly spread to a nearby 60-unit apartment building.

Investigators from the White Rock Fire Department and White Rock RCMP have since determined the fire was set on purpose.

"This fire and the resulting displacement of the building's residents has understandably shaken our community. The fact that it is now believed this fire was intentionally set will likely cause further distress to those residents, " said White Rock RCMP Const. Chantal Sears.

Anyone with information, or who saw anything potentially suspicious early on Sunday May 15 is asked to contact the White Rock RCMP at 778-593-3600, remain anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or at Solvecrime.ca.
