Toronto police have arrested five suspects after a reported break-in at a Scarborough church.

Officers were called to McCowan Road and Anson Avenue for a break and enter in progress at a church in the area.

Four of the suspects were arrested after short foot pursuit while a K9 unit helped track down the final suspect.

Police said the suspects, who are under the age of 18, are facing mischief charges.

Heavy smoke coming from inside the building originally believed to be a fire was determined to be a fire extinguisher that had been set off.

No injuries were reported.
