An incendiary device was thrown through the window of a Maple Ridge home early Monday, but no one was injured.

Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating the attempted arson, which happened at approximately 5:45 a.m. at a home in the 20900-block of Dewdney Trunk Road.

There were people in the house at the time, but the device didn’t function as intended and no fire resulted.

“There certainly was a likelihood of damage and injury in this incident,” said RCMP Insp. Dan Splinter.

“Fortunately, neither resulted, as there were no injuries or property damage.”

Police are in the initial phases of their investigation and few details are known.

“Investigators want to acknowledge and thank the citizen who called police and fire in the first instance.”

• Anyone with any information is asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251. To remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
