First, at around 10pm, firefighters were called to extinguish a giant pile of wooden pallets/skids that had caught fire near the corner of Lauzon and County Road 42. Officials say the pallets were intentionally set ablaze and damage is estimated at around $20,000.
Shortly thereafter, an auto body shop and former gas station at the corner of Tecumseh Road East and Benjamin exploded and burned significantly.
