LANGLEY, BC - Police and residents of a Langley neighbourhood are afraid an arsonist is on the loose after four families were burned out of their homes early Sunday morning.

The blaze that sent a number of people in the Amberleigh townhouse complex, in the 20400-block 66th Avenue, running for their lives was the culmination of 10 separate fires lit in a radius of several blocks within 60 minutes.

Investigators haven't connected the other nine dumpster fires -- which happened in the 66th Avenue and 204th Street area -- to the "suspicious" townhouse blaze, but are probing whether a single firebug is at work, said RCMP Sgt. Don Davidson.

This is right across the street from me. weird night, 10 or so fires started. Big props to Langley fire, they were on scene quick, 4 or 5 trucks in total. Whomever started the fire set this one deliberatly for sure. It looked like the ignition source was on one of the inside units. hard to get at from the path behind them.
