Fire at Williams Lake nightclub investigated

Williams Lake RCMP are investigating a possible arson at a business that was the site of a shooting earlier in the week.

Police were called to the fire at the Diamonds and Dust nightclub at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

The staff had located a fire in the rear of the building and called the fire department and safely evacuated the building. The fire was contained to a door at the rear and quickly extinguished. There have been no reports of injuries and an estimate of damage is not yet known.

The investigation is ongoing and police are looking to the public to help further this investigation. Police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this fire, or may have information on the person(s) responsible for this arson.

On April 25 the Diamonds and Dust Night Club was the scene of a shots fired call. That matter is still under investigation and it is not known at this time if there is a connection between the two investigations.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Williams Lake RCMP at 250 392-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222 8477.
