Update: James LEPINE has been located, arrested, and lodged at Brandon Correctional Centre. He will appear in court today on a charge of Arson Disregard for Human Life.

On November 11, 2019 shortly before 6:00 am, police and members from BFES responded to a structure fire at a residence in the 700 block of 13th street. Multiple individuals and pets evacuated safely from the building. There were no injuries reported as a result of this fire. We do not have an estimation as to the extent of the damage to the residence, except to say that it remains uninhabitable at this time.  A warrant was issued for the arrest of James LEPINE.
