A preview of Hell?

Maybe so.

Look, I don’t advocate violence or destruction of property, but I am not going to shed one tear over seeing three (demonic) Masonic Lodges burning to the ground….

How about you?

WeLoveTrump has obtained exclusive footage of the three different lodges all burning to the ground.

Take a look, here is #1 from Rumble:

CBC.ca had more details on the story:

Vancouver police arrested a 42-year-old man suspected of arson in three fires at Masonic lodges in Metro Vancouver on Tuesday morning.

The arrest came after an off-duty police officer driving past the Masonic temple near Rupert Street and East 29th Avenue in Vancouver noticed a man walking away from the building as it burned, according to Vancouver Police Department (VPD) Const. Tania Visintin.

Video taken by a bystander shows flames licking at an entrance to the temple as a man carries a red jerrycan to the trunk of a black van. He is then confronted by the off-duty officer.

The man managed to get away but was then arrested just before 10 a.m. in Burnaby near North Fraser Way and Marine Way, about a 20-minute drive from the location of the last of the fires, according to police.

“He did a great job in stopping and speaking to this suspect,” Visintin told reporters during a news conference, referring to the off-duty officer.

“He attempted to take the suspect into custody, a fight ensued, and the suspect was able to get away.”

North Vancouver fire crews responded to a fire near Lonsdale Avenue and 12th Street on Tuesday morning, one of three fires at Masonic lodges in the metro Vancouver area. Police later said they had arrested a 42-year-old man in connection with the fire.

The Vancouver fire followed two other blazes that were reported earlier in the morning at Masonic lodges in North Vancouver. Police say no one was injured during the fires or the arrest, and are recommending arson charges.

Investigators have released few details about the suspect or possible motives, except to say that he has a history of interactions with the police and no history of arson.

“We don’t have answers as to the motive,” North Vancouver RCMP Sgt. Peter DeVries said. “Those are questions that we want answers to as well.”

Visintin said she was not aware of any specific threats to Masonic organizations before Tuesday’s fires.

Fires began early Tuesday morning

North Vancouver RCMP received reports of the first fire at the Lynn Valley lodge just before 6:45 a.m.

A few minutes later, just before 7 a.m., they were notified of a second fire at Duke of Connaught Lodge No. 64 near Lonsdale Ave. and 12th St., a 10-minute drive away.

First responders said the third fire was reported at the Park Lodge Masonic Hall in Vancouver just before 7:30 a.m.

“This was a really quick-moving, fast investigation,” DeVries said.

While police tried to identify a suspect and draw connections between the three fires, officers were posted to other Masonic halls in the city.

In Vancouver, Assistant Fire Chief Mike Sereda said police were already on scene by the time fire crews arrived.

“They had been contacted by a passerby,” he said, adding a fire investigator was also at the scene to determine the cause of the fire.

The glass of the centre’s front door had been smashed and the inside stairwell was burned and blackened.

And from CTV News:

A suspect has been arrested in connection to a series of arsons at three Masonic halls in Metro Vancouver, police say.

Vancouver police issued a statement shortly after 1 p.m. Tuesday announcing a 42-year-old man was arrested in Burnaby. Arson charges are being recommended to Crown counsel, police say.

The arrest comes after fire crews and police were called to three separate blazes at Masonic halls Tuesday morning. Two were in North Vancouver while the third was in Vancouver.

“This was a joint collaboration with Vancouver police and our partners at the North Vancouver RCMP,” said Const. Tania Visintin in the news release.

“Officers were able to swiftly arrest the alleged suspect and we’re thankful that no one was physically harmed.”

The suspect was arrested near North Fraser Way and Marine Way, police say.

“This investigation unfolded very quickly,” says Sgt. Peter DeVries of the North Vancouver RCMP. “We have a very good working relationship with our partners at Vancouver Police. By sharing information and co-ordinating our efforts we were able to move swiftly as new information became available.”

One fire was reported at about 7 a.m. near Lonsdale Avenue and 11th Street East in a multi-unit building that has a Masonic hall. Images from the scene showed flames coming from the windows above a street-level business.

A second fire was also reported at a Masonic lodge in Lynn Valley, east of Mountain Highway. Shortly before 9 a.m., the District of North Vancouver confirmed that fire had been put out but investigators remained on scene.

Meanwhile, a fire at a Masonic hall in Vancouver on Rupert Street and 29th Avenue was also part of the police investigation. Crews were notified of the three fires between 6:45 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.
