Prince Rupert RCMP are asking for public assistance as they continue to probe a fatal fire in the city.
The North District Major Crime Unit was called in to assist after the early morning blaze last Thursday left a 59-year-old woman dead.
Corporal Dave Tyreman says the fire is definitely suspicious in nature, although he can’t elaborate about why police believe that.

Tyreman says anything out of place in the 200 block of 6th Avenue prior to the early morning fire should be called in to RCMP or Crimestoppers.
