Police say arson was behind a fire that heavily damaged the Innu Nation office in the Labrador community of Sheshatshiu.
In a release Friday, RCMP said the fire was reported to patrol officers at about 6 p.m. on Wednesday.
Police said the officers saw a number of children in the area and got them away from the fire.
The release said firefighters were able to beat back the fire, but that the building suffered serious damage.
The Sheshatshiu RCMP said the investigation into the fire is ongoing and they are asking anyone with information to come forward.
Sheshatshiu is a community of just over 1,000 people that sits about 40 kilometres north of Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
