The Ministry of Labour is investigating a work place accident after a 25-year-old man sustained serious trauma to his legs when a bus he was servicing fell on him.

Two fires — a home and an out building — are being treated as suspicious by Wellington County OPP and the Erin Fire Department.

The Erin Fire Department and Wellington County OPP responded to both fires Sunday morning.

The first one happened at approximately 8:15 a.m. on 3rd Line in Erin. Police said it was reported that an out building was seen with smoke coming from the roof.

Typically, an out building is a garage, shed or barn but police haven't confirmed the exact building type.

The second fire happened on Wellington Road 125, south of Wellington Road 124, at 9:00 a.m. Sunday. Police said an empty home was engulfed in flames.

There were no injuries.

Police said both buildings are believed to be vacant, and continue to investigate. The Ontario Fire Marshall Office has also been notified, police said.
