Sooke Fire Chief Steve Sorensen says crews from the Sooke, Otter Point and Metchosin fire departments battled a fully involved structure fire in Sooke tonight.
They arrived at the 1.5 storey abandoned log home in the Whiffin Spit area on McMillan Road near Walse-A Road in Sooke around 8:30 pm to find it fully involved.
Chief Sorensen says it appears at this time nobody was inside but that squatters have been known to camp out on occasion.
He adds that the fire seems suspicious at this time.
The same structure was badly damaged by a fire in November 2009.
