Police suspect boy, 10, in 'suspicious' Dollarama fire

For the second time this year, there has been a suspicious fire at a Dollarama store on Windsor's east side.

Windsor Police now say their suspect in a Dollarama fire was about 10 years old.

Witnesses report a boy was seen acting suspiciously in the store on Wyandotte Street East moments before the fire started Monday night.

The boy was said to be seen on his hands and knees coming around the corner of an aisle near the back of the store. Police say the fire was discovered in the same corner of the store.

Customers alerted staff, who managed to stomp out the fire and a manager used an extinguisher to make sure the fire was out.

The boy fled and staff evacuated the store.

The fire started among some candles and floral necklaces. Damage to shelving and products was limited to about $1,000.

Police are looking for a white boy, about four feet tall and 10 years old with dirty blond longer hair.

Monday's fire was the second at a Dollarama this year.

Back in April, the Dollarama on Tecumseh Road near Lauzon Parkway was destroyed in a massive fire that caused millions in damages. Arson investigators are still working on that case.
