Suspicious fire at grocery store

A Thursday-morning fire that lit up the frame around a grocery store loading dock was similar to one set outside a dollar store in March, officials said. “It is pretty close to the same style of fire,” Orillia’s deputy fire chief Jeff Kirk said. Firefighters responded to the Metro grocery store on Front Street shortly after 10 a.m. to find the loading dock’s wooden border and foam bumpers burning. “We had to rip (the bumpers) down because of the expansion of the fire,” said Kirk, noting that the burning material was quickly extinguished. An evacuation of the store was unnecessary as the fire was contained to the outside of the loading dock, he added. The fire caused about $3,000 in damages, and is being treated as suspicious. The case has been handed over to the OPP for investigation. “There was no evidence of any incendiary devices at the scene,” Kirk said. Police said arson was the cause of a short-lived fire at the rear of a Memorial Avenue Dollarama store on March 12. There, too, the frame and bumpers around the loading dock were set ablaze.

Bluewater saves the (Labour) day

Summer vacation could have been cut short this year. A calendar anomaly has Labour Day falling on September 7 this year, which forces school boards to begin the school year before the long weekend that characteristically marks the end of summer vacation. However, the Bluewater board has come up with a solution to save the final days of freedom, at least for students in the district. In following the rules of the Education Act, school boards across the province are required to begin the 2009 – 2010 school year prior to Labour Day. The Bluewater board decided to use some of the allowable professional activity (PA) days at the beginning of the year so that students will not have to attend classes until September 8. The school year for staff will begin on September 2. The schedule, which has students in class until June 29 will be submitted to the Ministry of Education for approval on May 1, 2009.
