Nottawasaga OPP's Crime Unit is investigating a storage trailer fire
that occurred last night at a property on Wales Avenue in Everett which
is deemed to be "suspicious."
It's the second "suspicious" fire in two days in the area, including
Tuesday night at an abandoned property on the 13th Line in New
"It is unknown if the two fire scenes are connected at this time,"
according to the OPP.
Last night, the OPP's K-9 unit was called in as there appeared to be
foot prints leading to and from the storage trailer. The search did not
yield any suspects.
The 13th Line fire also continues to be under investigation, including
involvement from the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office.
