The Windsor Police Explosives Disposal Unit was on the scene of a bomb scare at the Canada Post Mail Sorting Facility on Walker Road Wednesday night.  Police and fire arrived at 6pm and at 1:34am, the bomb scare was over.  Police have not given out details as to what took place.

Wednesday night, a small fire broke out at Accucaps Industries on Ambassador Drive in the city’s West End that started inside a large motor in the building around 9:30pm.  The motor produced a significant amount of smoke in the building. The building’s sprinkler system caused a great deal of water to pool up inside the structure.

A statement was released about the Easter Monday fire at the Dollarama.  It reads in part, “investigation has concluded that the fire was intentionally/deliberately set. This determination has been made as a result of the observations of credible eye witnesses who observed the fire in its early stage of fire growth and who were able to provide investigators with a well defined area of fire origin.”

Firefighters responded to the 800 block of Monmouth Road in Old Walkerville for smoke and flames coming from a garage, around 8pm Tuesday.  Investigators determined that the fire was intentionally set in garbage outside the garage. The fire caused $20,000 in damage.

Plans are in the works for a full repair of Ottawa Street, and this includes removing the rumble strips — the brick crosswalks that produce a rumbling sound when vehicles drive over them, will be removed when plans to repave the street move forward.
