Two vacant buildings at the Williams Inn were destroyed by fire early Monday in Williams Lake.
Fire crews were called to the scene at 3:45 a.m. and continued to work into the daylight getting to the seed of the fire.
Fire chief Des Webster said there was no hydro or gas to either of the buildings and because of that the fires are being looked at as suspicious.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this point, Webster said.
By 9 a.m. excavators were arriving at the scene to help with the crews’ efforts.
One building was completely destroyed and the second one, while half destroyed, will be probably knocked down, Webster said.
Sixth Avenue will be closed at the scene until further notice.
In 2012 another section of the Williams Inn was destroyed by fire, resulting in several people losing their homes.
