Police now believe the fire that eventually destroyed three homes in Princeton last week was deliberately set in the attached garage of one of the homes.
After engulfing the original residence, the fire quickly spread to two other adjacent homes.
“It’s a blessing that there were no injuries associated to these fires, but property damage appears to be extensive,” says Sgt. Barry Kennedy of the Princeton RCMP.
A good Samaritan was able to wake the residents of one burning home and get them out safely before officers arrived.
Princeton RCMP have identified a suspect who is now in police custody.
Since the investigation is still in the early stages, police are not releasing any names at this time.
