Two fires last weekend in the Brentwood Village Mobile Home Park were deliberately set, the Office of the Fire Commissioner reported Tuesday.
A spokesman for the fire commissioner’s office said an investigation into the fires on Saturday has been turned over to Brandon Police Service.
On Saturday at approximately 6:40 a.m., Brandon police noticed smoke coming from the trailer park area.
Upon investigation, the officers discovered a wooden box adjacent to a mobile home on fire, which they extinguished.
While doing so, officers saw smoke escaping from a mobile home close by, and Brandon Fire & Emergency Services was called to the scene.
The building was vacant, but an active fire was found inside and extinguished by fire crews.
Meanwhile, on Sunday at around 3 a.m., police and fire crews were called to a shed fire on Applewood Bay. The shed and its contents were destroyed in the blaze.
The Office of the Fire Commissioner did not attend that fire, the spokesman said.
Brandon Police Service public information officer Sgt. Ed Conway said investigators are looking into all three fires.
