The West District RCMP is looking for information that could help in their investigation of a suspicious fire in Oxbow, New Brunswick, about 15 kilometres north of Plaster Rock.


Shortly before 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 10, fire engulfed a building owned by the Canadian Métis Council - Intertribal, on Route 385 in Oxbow. Firefighters were able to keep the blaze from spreading to nearby buildings, but the fire took several hours to control and the main structure was destroyed. RCMP said no one was inside the building at the time of the fire.

Cst. Liette Thériault said members of the Perth-Andover detachment responded to the July 10 fire and their investigation has determined that it was deliberately set.

Police are asking anyone with information, or who may have seen anyone in the area before the fire to contact the Perth-Andover RCMP at 506-273-5000.

Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), texting TIP212 + your message to 'CRIMES' (274637), or by Secure Web Tips at
