Arson possible cause of White St. fires

Aylmer Fire Chief Sam Taylor said arson could be the possible cause of multiple small fires that had to be put out behind the former recycling building on White Street in northwest Aylmer on Wednesday night, May 20.

Chief Taylor said firefighters were called to the property at 9:56 p.m.

“Five set fires were found in wood pallets, waste cardboard and rubbish,” Chief Taylor said.

The fires were extinguished and the scene was turned over to the Aylmer Police for further investigation.

“The possible cause is arson,” Chief Taylor said.

Fifteen firefighters responded to the call and were on the scene for 81 minutes.
