Mounties are probing a suspected arson at a packaging firm after two men dressed in black were seen running away from the scene.
Richmond Fire-Rescue called in police at around 10 p.m. last Thursday to the Brighouse West Business Park at 6691 Elmbridge Way after hearing reports of the men running away from CFC Packaging.
A preliminary investigation by the fire department and the RCMP arson team also uncovered an accelerant they suspect was used to start the fire.
On Tuesday, one of the company's large cargo doors was boarded up, but smoke-stained blackened edges could be seen behind.
The investigation team is also trying to track down video surveillance of the area. Richmond RCMP's Cpl. Stephanie Ashton said on Tuesday that the investigation is still in its early stages and asked for anyone with information to come forward and call 604 278 1212 or Crimestoppers anonymously at 1 800 222 8477.
CFC Packaging makes the likes of plastic bags, protective packaging, pizza and cake boxes, foam trays and flowerpots, distributing them across North America.
