Mischief to Property

At approximately 5:30pm several youth were playing with matches in a field behind the Antigonish Education Center in Antigonish County. As a result a grass fire was started and quickly got out of control. Antigonish County Fire Department responded and was able to control the blaze. RCMP have dealt with those responsible for the fire.

RCMP Antigonish would like to remind people to always check with their local municipalities on regulations for fires in their area prior to burning. With summer comes warmer temperatures and dry conditions which can lead to out of control fires putting everyone at risk.

If you have any information that would assist the police with solving these crimes or any crimes within your community you are encouraged to call the local RCMP Detachment at (902) 863-6500 or if you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers anytime at 1-800-222-8477. Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped and if the police make an arrest and lay charges based on the tip you could qualify for a cash reward from $50.00 up to $ 2000.00 Dollars.
