  • Fire: 2 Sunday fires under investigation, and 1 could be work of serial arsonist

    Two fires that broke out Sunday are being investigated, one of them by the Ottawa police arson unit.


    The first fire happened at 309 Montfort St., a two-storey home on the corner of Ste Anne Avenue off Montreal Road, just before 3 a.m.

    Residents who called 911 reported heavy smoke and flames visible from the rear of the home, firefighters said in a media release issued Sunday.

    One person was inside at the time but managed to get out safely. Two others living there were away, fire officials said.

    Fire crews managed to bring the flames under control by about 3:30 a.m., and no one was injured. Damage is estimated at about $450,000.

    Police, firefighters issue warning after more suspicious fires strike Vanier


    Ottawa police and firefighters are warning residents of Vanier to be on alert after a series of suspicious fires in the area that a neighbourhood crime prevention advocate calls "very worrisome."

    The most recent broke out just before 3 a.m. Sunday at 309 Montfort St., a two-storey home at the corner of Ste Anne Avenue, just off Montreal Road. Someone was home at the time but no one was injured.

    Arson unit investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.

    Another fire on May 20 at a two-storey home at 278 Shakespeare St. is also being treated as suspicious. That blaze displaced four people, firefighters said.
