Arson is suspected as the cause of a fire Wednesday night at an affordable housing development in Smithers.
 
Fire Chief Keith Stecko says firefighters were called to Alpine Court on Bulkley Drive at around 7:30.
 
"When we arrived we noticed their office/laundry building was engulfed in fire; the roof section was severely damaged but the base and structure itself is intact," he explained.
