Police responded on Oct. 5 to another suspicious boat fire, this one located at the wharf in nearby Comeauville, N.S.
At the time police said the boat, identified as the 36-foot-long boat Kris & Carm was set on fire and destroyed.
No one was injured in the blaze and police said at the time that the boat had been at the wharf for at least six weeks for mechanical repair.
The Kris & Carm was owned by Robert Syliboy of the Sipken’katik First Nation, one of the men who received a licence as part of the community’s moderate livelihood lobster fishery.
That fire remains under investigation.
Anyone with information on either fire is asked to call RCMP at 902-645-2346 or to contact Crime Stoppers.
