Ontario Provincial Police are investigating after a number of portable toilets were destroyed by fire at a storage yard in Erin.
Police say that around 5:00 a.m. fire crews and emergency services responded to a fire at 19 Pioneer Drive.
Approximately 24 of the toilets were destroyed while several others were damaged from the extreme heat, say police.
Damage is estimated at $40,000 and OPP believe the fire is suspicious.
This fire is one in a long list of suspicious fires in Wellington County that are currently under investigation.
Marylou Schwindt, a constable with the County of Wellington OPP says that this fire is different in nature from the other suspicious fires in late July, but that they aren't ruling out a connection just yet.
