My note about his being ill doesn't fit the literal interpretation of "conjecture" or "hearsay" ... in that the information was shared directly with me by a person who spoke regularly with Mr. Draeger, and to whom Mr. Draeger repeatedly noted that he was quite ill.



"2nd hand information" might be more appropriate nomenclature.

I hope an alternate development plan is proposed. The last thing needed in this part of town is another "heritage" vacant lot.

Victoria BC – Detectives from the VicPD Major Crime Unit are continuing their investigation into the suspicious fire at the site of the old Plaza Hotel.

On May 6th, a devastating fire occurred at 603 Pandora Avenue and from the early stages, VicPD officers have been working in concert with the Victoria Fire Department. For more than a week, officers have been at the site examining the debris and, at this time, the care and control of the property has been handed over to the owners. The investigation is ongoing and we continue to work with the Victoria Fire Department. To protect the integrity of the investigation, no further details will be released about the search, or investigation.

Mike Draeger, the building caretaker, remains unaccounted for.

These type of investigations are lengthy and an appropriate amount of resources continues to be dedicated to investigating the origin of the fire.
