Police ask for public's help as they investigate suspicious fires in the Collingwood area

Cumberland District RCMP is asking for the public's help as they continue to investigate several structure fires in the county.

Police say there have been reports of around ten fires at unoccupied properties in the Collingwood area and beyond since February, resulting in either significant damage or total destruction of the structures.

S/Sgt. Craig Learning with Cumberland District RCMP says, "These fires take up a lot of resources and we're concerned that someone will eventually get hurt."

He says he hopes there's someone out there knows something about these incidents and will come forward by contacting Springhill RCMP.
