Multiple suspicious fires in Iroquois Falls have policing investigating heavily into the causes.

We reported earlier in the month a suspicious fire in a home on Reynolds Street.

The OPP now says it was arson and is scaling up its investigation of multiple blazes in the region.

Police say an 82-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman were seriously injured when escaping the fire set to their home.

OPP Constable Maggie O’Connor says considerable damage has been done to homes and commercial buildings within the community.

 

The police are asking members of the public to step forward if they know anything about the blazes.
