Shed torched in Cedar

Const. Sherri Wade, Nanaimo RCMP spokeswoman, said the shed sustained substantial damage, but the heat and flames did not affect a home on the property nor any neighbouring properties.

This is the most recent suspected arson in Cedar.

Three  vehicles were set on fire in Cedar with minutes and within blocks of one another early Feb. 15.
