A bad day got worse for a West Porters Lake man whose mobile home was destroyed in a fire as he was arrested by police after officers allegedly discovered a marijuana grow-op.

Halifax RCMP were on the scene to help with traffic control in the area as Halifax regional fire tried to control the evening blaze on Monday night. After the blaze was extinguished, RCMP allege they saw and seized 157 marijuana seedlings from a shed next to the house.

The man, 51, faces charges of cultivation of marijuana.

This is the third reported grow operation in the HRM since last Thursday.
