NEW PHOTOS: Frenchville’s Christmas Day alleged arson

DEC 26, 2020:

A police vehicle stands guards over a Salamanca St home which was engulfed by flames yesterday evening.

It is believed the 51-year old occupant walked away from the fire and was later arrested on a nearby surburban street.

The few charred items scattered around the burned out shell stand as a stark reminder how badly this Christmas Day incident could have ended.
