Arson possible in Torbay boat fire

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is investigating how a boat came to catch fire in Torbay on Sunday.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said Monday it considers a weekend fire that destroyed a boat to be suspicious.

The fire department and patrol officers were called to Tapper's Cove on the north side of Torbay just before 2:30 p.m.

A 10-metre long boat, which was on a trailer, was extensively damaged.

The RNC appealed Monday for information on "suspicious persons or vehicles" that may have been in the area on Sunday afternoon.
