Rogersville's new Municipal Buildings targeted by arsonist

By Pierre Little

Fire reportedly set Saturday morning around 11 a.m.  The newly constructed municipal offices was the target of an arsonist.  RCMP are saying someone intentionally threw an incendiary device on the roof in the early morning hours on Saturday May 4 and are seeking the publics help.  The new facility was being built because fire completely destroyed the municipal offices in January of last year.  The Mayors offices, RCMP and Fire Department were in the same building last year and all offices and equipement were lost [see photos and video below].  The new facility also has all three community offices, mayor, police and fire, together once again.

This fire is being treated as a crime and is being investigated by the RCMP and Fire Department.  Point of Origin contractors from Fredericton,, were brought in to locate the starting point of the fire and to identify which accelerant was used.  RCMP are asking the help of the community contact them with any information at 1-888-222-TIPS or on their website at

So far it would seem that no video survallance was present and it may be time to install proper video equipement to prevent the loss of the facility.

Story is developing.... 





January 9, 2012 fire that destroyed the Municipal offices, RCMP detatchment and the Fire Department.
