City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service – Possible Suspicious Fire

In Police Blotter

(Note: In the press release by CKLPS they issued a photo to accompany the release.  The photo shows liquid being poured onto a floor by an individual wearing black gloves and grey track pants.  Unfortunately and adding to the confusion, it doesn’t state whether it is a file photo or one from the incident.  If it is a stock photo it should be identified as such to give the reader that knowledge.  If it is from the investigation the same applies)
