Tenants Evacuated after Flammable Liquid Poured Inside Building
More than a dozen tenants were forced to flee an apartment building in southwestern New Brunswick after someone poured a flammable liquid inside and threatened to set it on fire.
The Canadian Red Cross says the three-storey building on Schoodic Street in St. Stephen was evacuated around 4 a.m. Saturday.
No one was injured. Police later apprehended a suspect.
Red Cross volunteers arranged emergency lodging and meals for 14 people, including three children. Tenants were told it could be several days before they will be allowed to return home.
