SYDNEY — Cape Breton Regional Police are investigating three suspicious fires that occurred in the same area of the city, early Saturday.

This building containing three apartments was extensively damaged in a fire early Saturday morning. All occupants of the building were able to escape without injury. Police and the Fire Marshal's Office are investigating this suspicious fire as well as two others in the neighbourhood.

A building containing three apartments on Lorway Avenue in Sydney was extensively damaged in a blaze that was reported around 12:45 a.m. Saturday. The apartments were occupied at the time of the fire but all residents were able to escape without injuries.

Just a half-hour earlier, police were called to the scene of a shed fire on nearby Argyle Street in Sydney. The shed was destroyed but no one was injured.

A third fire in the area was also called in to police Saturday, after a Lorway Avenue home owner reported that someone had set fire to a wreath attached to the front door of the home. The owner was able to extinguish the fire and only minor damage to the door was caused.

No other details were immediately available from police, Sunday morning.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cape Breton Regional Police at 563-5151 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at (902) 562-8477 or www.capebretoncrimestoppers.ca.
