Another smoke shop fire in Caledonia

Posted: February 8, 2008 in Caledonia, Tobacco Kings

From CD98.9 

Haldimand OPP are investigating two fires in Caledonia. Early Thursday morning police got a report of a barn fire at the Caledonia Fair Grounds on Caithness Street East. Haldimand County Fire Department extinguished the barn that stored wooden planks, straw, and utility trailers.

Minutes later, firefighters and police were called to another fire – this time at a smoke shop at the south end of Argyle Street on Highway 6 in Caledonia. The smoke shop sustained minor damage as the fire was quickly put out by firefighters from Hagersville.

No injuries were reported in either fire and the total amount of damage is unknown at this time. While the cause of the barn fire is to be determined, the smoke shop fire has been determined as intentionally set.

Edit: More information on this fire / alleged arson will be posted as it becomes available but for the moment the OPP are being quiet about the details and I’m not going to post the rampant rumors and speculation floating around.

    I wonder if “Lil’ Caesar” Fantino is interested enough in arson to run a proper investigation or does he already have a press release ready that blames it on Gary.
