Thunder Bay-area volunteer firefighter faces arson charge
Cody Plummer, 22, charged after a fire at an unoccupied home in Gorham Township
Ontario Provincial Police in Thunder Bay have charged a volunteer firefighter with arson.
Cody Plummer, 22, from Thunder Bay was charged after emergency services were called in March to a fire at an unoccupied home in Gorham Township, north of Thunder Bay, police said in a written release issued Thursday.
The fire destroyed the building, police said, and a subsequent investigation determined the blaze was suspicious.
Plummer, who is a member of the Lappe Fire Department, was charged with arson causing damage to property and conspiracy to commit an indictable offense.
A 22 year-old woman also faces an arson charge.
Both are scheduled to be in court in June.
The Lappe Fire Department was called to fight the fire. A spokesperson for the fire service said Plummer is currently on leave.
