Liberty Village is the latest neighbourhood struck by a string of suspected arsons this summer after a series of 11 small fires were lit in the area late Monday night and early yesterday.


Police and firefighters had their first sign of things to come when they were called to a dumpster fire on Atlantic Avenue. Within half an hour, another two dumpster fires were reported in the area. Eight more fires were called in over the next two hours, bringing the total to 11 by 12:30 a.m. Police are treating the fires as arson.
