The Toronto Police Service would like to notify the public about a deliberately set garage fire that occurred at 538 Pape Avenue, on Thursday, December 6, 2007, at 3:05 a.m.

There have been several fires, similar to this one, since May 2007.

These fires have involved the burning of garages, many of which housed vehicles. In one case, the fire spread to an adjoining residence.

These types of fires have the potential to spread quickly, and could result in either the loss of life or massive property damage.

The Toronto Police Service is asking the public to be vigilant and report any type of suspicious activity in and around laneways and garages.

Officers will be spending the upcoming weekend canvassing affected the areas for information.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the 55 Division Detective office at 416-808-5504 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
