How good is your memory?

Police are hoping it's razor sharp as they ask for public assistance in finding those who set fire to a Surrey school portable nine months ago. Damage to the property is estimated to be about $60,000.

Last July 30, at about 5 a.m., fire crews were called to T.E. Scott Elementary, near 70 Avenue and 148 Street, for a report of a suspicious fire.

On arrival, they found a burning portable in the southeast corner of the school property.

Investigators believe the fire was started with some wood supplies that were being stored next to the portable.

It's believed the fire was the result of vandalism, but police yet to identify any suspects.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact Const. Dwayne Friesen, General Investigation Services, at 778-593-3166. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
