Mounties search with a dog for suspects in suspicious fire early Wednesday morning in the 45000 block of Watson Rd.

 

ire broke out in a home on Watson Rd. at Dundee Dr. just before 4 A.M. this morning. A neighbour told police they saw at least two kids running from the home as smoke was spotted. Mounties set up a perimeter in an effort to contain the suspects and dispatched a K9 unit. There was no word if suspects were apprehended at press time.

 

It's not clear if the home was vacant at the time of the fire because the neighbour also said that he hadn't seen any vehicle parked there over the last month.

 

One fireman was overcome by the noxious white smoke billowing from the home and was seen being treated by paramedics on the scene.

 

More on this later as it becomes available.
