Officials have not said how or where the fire started, but police said Wednesday that the Prince George Fire Department’s initial observations suggested it was suspicious.

Flames badly damaged one wing of the hotel and forced the closure of several streets in downtown Prince George Wednesday, including a stretch of Highway 16.
