Saskatoon builders suspect arson

August 6, 2017



Arson is suspected after a series of fires damaged new home construction sites in Saskatoon, warns the Saskatoon and Regina Home Builders’ Association. (SRHBA). The latest fire started July 20 at a Martensville site.
“This is the third incident of fires this construction season. We informed our members to be extra vigilant,” Christina Guerrette, CEO of the SRHBA told Home BUILDER.
The first fires were reported in April, affecting a number of builders in Stonebridge.
In the latest blaze, a five-plex burnt to the ground and two other buildings were damaged in a project being built by North Ridge Development Corp.
Martensville fire department Chief Kurtis Dyck said he believes the fire was suspicious, but “there is too much destruction to find any cause”.
Errol Fisher, vice-president of operations for North Ridge, said no one was hurt in the latest fire. He said the company would “clean it up and rebuild.”
Saskatoon police are investigating, noting that seven suspected arson attacks are being looked at, five of which involved residential construction sites.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Saskatoon police at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
