Freshwater, NLFreshwater, Placentia Bay


According to the RCMP, the homeowner saw a light outside his window just before 5 a.m., and thought he'd left the lights on in his truck.  

When he checked it out, he saw that his son's ATV was on fire in the driveway.  

The Placentia volunteer fire department put out the fire, but not before the ATV was destroyed and considerable damage was done to the house and an adjoining shed.  

Police say they're treating the fire as suspicious.

They are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them.
