(Video) Police seek man who might know something about Burnaby arson spree

Police are hoping to speak to a man who might know something about a series of arsons in Burnaby earlier this month.

Burnaby RCMP responded to multiple reports of arsons in the area of Beresford Street and Dow Avenue on the morning of Oct. 4.

Two vehicles and a tent with two people inside had been set on fire, according to police.

Burnaby RCMP has now released a photo and video of a man they believe might have information that could help further the investigation into the incidents.

In a news release Friday, the man was described as being six-feet tall with a slender build. He was wearing a black hoodie and dark coloured pants on the day of the arsons.

If you are this man, know this man or have any information that could assist the investigation, please contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.solvecrime.ca.

Since sending out their first news release about the arsons, police have heard from a Good Samaritan who saved the occupants of the burning tent.

She alerted them to the fire, helped them out and extinguished the blaze, according to police.

“Police are thankful to this person for coming forward and for the bravery she showed in assisting these two individuals and putting the tent fire out,” the release stated.
