Restaurant fire not an accident

Police are treating a fire at a restaurant in a north-end plaza as arson.
“At this time, investigators believe this fire to have been deliberately set, and it is not believed to be a random act,” said a Guelph Police Service news release.
The fire happened May 4 at around 8 p.m. at Ken’s Family Restaurant at the corner of Silvercreek Parkway and Woodlawn Road. Three Guelph police officers were treated in hospital for smoke inhalation as a result of the blaze, and one male from the restaurant was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
As of Monday May 12, the male was still in hospital.
The Guelph Police Service continues to investigate and is not releasing additional information about the circumstances surrounding the incident, but police want to hear from any members of the public who might have information that could help with the investigation.
Members of the public who were in the area of Silvercreek and Woodlawn on May 4 between 7 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. and noticed anything are being asked to contact Det. Const. Lester Tang at 519-824-1212, ext. 7343, or Det. Sgt. Dave Elloway at ext. 7344.
