A Canada Day fire at a vacant White Rock house was not intentionally set, the city’s fire chief has confirmed.

Chief Phil Lemire said Tuesday that while investigation did not pinpoint exactly what triggered the blaze in the 15400-block of Goggs Avenue, it did rule out anything nefarious.

“There may have been some circumstances around it that made it look potentially suspicious,” Lemire said.

“There was nothing in that area that made (the investigator) inclined to suggest it was suspicious.”

Fire crews were alerted to the blaze around 10:30 p.m. July 1. It was burning in a cluttered, ground-level room.
