A spate of suspicious fires within three hours in Christchurch overnight appear to be linked, police say. About 3am on Monday, firefighters received multiple calls about a large blaze at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, in Waitikiri Drive, Parklands. A spokesman said the building had not been used for congregations since March due to Covid-19, with meetings held online. “The building was well alight when we arrived. It’s a decent-sized building,” she said. “It has since been extinguished. It’s considered possibly suspicious and is being investigated.” Half an hour later, the alarm was raised at Christchurch Transitional Cathedral, in Hereford St, about a small fire in a back room.
