SURREY — Investigators are still trying to determine if a car fire in Bridgeview early Saturday morning was the work of an arsonist.

The small car, parked near a residence in the 12400-block of 113B Avenue, went up in flames a few minutes after 5 a.m.

Police and firefighters responded.

“The vehicle was completely destroyed by the fire and the residence only had minor exterior damages,” Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said. “The fire had apparently spread from the vehicle to the exterior of the residence.

“The fire appears to be suspicious in nature,” he said, “and the exact cause is presently unknown. The investigation is continuing.”
