Arson suspected in fire behind Windsor vegetable market
Windsor fire officials suspect arson after a blaze at a vegetable market in the 1100 block of Wyandotte Street East.
Crews were dispatched to Bazzi Produce about 4:00 a.m. Wednesday.
Damage to the adjacent building, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, is pegged at $10,000.
“The flames were higher than the roof line and made their way through our roof,” says Alexis Baksi, general manager of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Baksi is disappointed at the damage.
“It’s a bit of a kick while you are laying down,” says Baksi. “This isn't one of those accidental situations, someone saw an opportunity to make trouble and they made it.”
Fire officials say it started in pallets stored against the outside of the building.
