  1. Wonder if this guy set the fires on Wellington East and track property in 2014. Two cars, a garage and 3 on the track property were set that night. Never did hear any more about that night.

  2. About 5 years ago this guy was charged with a string of purposefully lit fires including the one on Towers street. They better put him away before he kills someone.
