Police are treating a fire that ripped through a watersports centre in Rock as suspicious.

At its height, more than 40 crew from Wadebridge, Bodmin and Delabole battled the blaze in the early hours of Thursday morning.

A fire investigation dog has been drafted in to help with the inquiry.

Detective Inspector Tony Blatchford from Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The building has been severely damaged. Thankfully there was no-one inside at the time otherwise we could have been dealing with an even more tragic outcome.
 
"Although there may not have been many people around at that time in the morning we are hoping someone may have seen something that could assist with the investigation. If you saw anything suspicious please get in touch."  
 
The road was closed at the junction of Rock Road and Bodmin Lane until 7.30am. No evacuation was needed of nearby premises.
 
Anyone who has any information is asked to call police on 101 quoting log 84 of 25/07/13 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
