Shortly after one o'clock Saturday morning, an alarm of fire was given and the old woollen mill was found to be on fire, As the water power was turned on, the belt broke and it was discovered to be almost cut in two by a knife or other sharp instrument. After a hard fight to save the adjoining buildings, the fire won and the building used for the village electric light plant was completely destroyed. An attempt to set fire to the saw mill was made, but was discovered before much headway was made. A third attempt was made on the stable, which also burned to the ground. The evidence of arson was so apparent that the Fire Marshall of Ontario made an investigation and an arrest has been made. Further developments are expected very soon.
