Bulldozer fire near Bauline Line considered suspicious

Police are looking for anyone who may have information about a suspicious tractor fire near Bauline Line one week ago.

Officers with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary were called on Monday, April 24 just after 7 a.m., following reports that a John Deere bulldozer was on fire in a gravel pit off Bauline Line, near Middle Three Island Pond Road.

Volunteer fire fighters from Torbay managed to extinguish the fire, and there were no injuries.

The RNC has now determined that the fire was suspicious, and is asking anyone who might help identify who was responsible to get in touch with them.

The tractor that was destroyed is valued between $200,000 and $250,000, according to police.
