One-Hour Photo fire deemed arson-related

The investigation into a fire that destroyed Sunnyside's One-Hour Photo Express on the night of Tuesday, April 13, has led fire officials to believe it was an arson.

The Sunnyside Fire Department today (Monday) released its findings, stating, "An ignitable substance was found in the structure and a point of entrance."

Anyone with information about the blaze is urged to call the Sunnyside Fire Department at 837-6407 or the Sunnyside Police Department at 836-6200.

Also, since last Thursday the Sunnyside Fire Department has responded to two reported fires.

A brush fire was reported at approximately 3 p.m. last Thursday in the area of Scoon and Van Belle roads, but it was a controlled burn.

A possible structure fire yesterday (Sunday) just before 11 a.m. was the cause of racing fire trucks. The fire was located in the 100 block of Parkland Drive and there was minor damage to the exterior of the residence, but the blaze was out on arrival.

Sunnyside firefighters since last Wednesday have also responded to 16 aid calls, of which seven patients were taken to the hospital. Four other patients were transported from Sunnyside Community Hospital to other medical facilities.
