Arson suspected in Burlington fire

An arsonist may have started a fire that badly damaged an abandoned building in Burlington Saturday evening.

Around 6:15 p.m., fire crews arrived at the former offices of Sun Chemical at Plains Road East and Brant Street.

Heavy smoke and flames prompted emergency workers to evacuate a nearby plaza as a precaution.

A firefighter was treated in hospital for minor injuries and released.

The Ontario Fire Marshal is investigating.
