A series of abandoned apartment buildings caught fire Saturday morning in what the Hay River Fire Department is calling a case of arson.

The fire was quickly extinguished, but the complex was extensively damaged. No injuries were reported in the fire.


The Fire Department, NWT Fire Marshall Office and Hay River RCMP are treating the case as suspicious, and an arson investigation is underway.
The RCMP is asking the public to come forward with any information regarding the incident.
