RCMP

Halifax District RCMP are investigating an arson in Lake Echo.

The Mounties responded to a house fire on Bumpy Lane late Monday morning and soon determined the fire was suspicious in nature.

Police say a man was seen fleeing the home at the time of the fire but have not indicated if it may have been the same person, a 28-year-old man, who was arrested Monday afternoon.

There were no injuries in the fire and officials have not released any information on why it was deemed suspicious.

The investigation continues.
