Weekend fire at property east of Lake Cowichan
Lake Cowichan RCMP are asking anyone, who might have information on a weekend fire, to call the detachment.
Police say around 10:45 Saturday morning they received a call to assist the Lake Cowichan Fire Department with a structure fire, in the 7000 block of Cowichan Lake Road.
Upon their arrival the building was fully engulfed in flames.
Mounties say at the time of the fire, there were no people inside the building and the property owners were successful in rescuing a number of domestic animals, including cats and birds, however one domestic cat is still unaccounted for.
The Lake Cowichan RCMP and Fire Department are still trying to determine the cause of the fire, and rule out any possibility of criminality.
