Regina Fire and Protective Services are indicating a fire that destroyed a duplex on the 600 block of Garnet Street on Sunday was the result of arson.
Crews responded to the scene just before 5:00 AM, where the duplex was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived. The fire was controlled quickly, but according to Deputy Fire Chief Gord Hewitt, the property is a complete loss.
No one was inside of the building at the time of the fire, and no one was injured as a result of the incident.
Regina Police are now investigating.
This was one of two house fires in Regina during the August long weekend. Fires on the 2300 block of MacKay Street and 1200 block of Wallace Street stayed in the basement. No one was injured in either fire, but the Wallace Street residence suffered smoke damage throughout the home.
