A fire that caused major damage to a partially-constructed house in Brampton was deliberately set, police say.
Around 1:30am on Tuesday, emergency crews responded to the blaze on Mission Ridge Trail, part of a new subdivision near The Gore and Castlemore roads.
The flames had engulfed the home and caused $300,000 in damage before firefighters could douse them.
The Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office deemed the fire arson, although they do not yet know the cause.
Detectives would like witnesses or anyone with information to call them at (905) 453-2121, ext. 2133 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
