Rash Of Brush Fires Ruled Suspicious In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on August 8, 2011

Sometimes you see something happening you know isn’t right.  A person along the I and M Canal in Ottawa Sunday became suspicious after noticing a man seeming to start grass fires along the way.

He snapped a picture with his phone and soon police officers had the man they think is responsible for a number of fires along the canal since last Thursday.

Kenneth Johnson of Ottawa faces a misdemeanor criminal damage to property charge.  That charge could be made more serious as an investigation continues.
