Rogersville's village office bolsters surveillance after fires
Municipal office was damaged twice by fires since 2012
Rogersville’s municipal building has beefed up its surveillance system after two fires damaged or destroyed previous buildings.
A year ago, a suspicious fire caused significant damage to a brand new municipal building in Rogersville.
The village was forced to rebuild their municipal building after an earlier fire completed gutted the old building in January 2012.
The building contains municipal offices, community rooms, the RCMP and the local fire department.
Marc Pitre, the village’s fire chief, said the village improved surveillance of the building and installed several security cameras after the second fire.
“We just hope that this building is going to last 100 years like it's supposed to and stay safe,” he said.
“I'm confident now we are home to stay, that's all we wanted. Now we can keep doing our jobs in security and peace of mind.”
Pitre said the investigation into the cause of last year's fire continues.
He said several suspects have been interviewed by the RCMP, but no arrests have been made.
Police continue to seek the public's assistance in this case.
