Authorities are investigating whether a suspected arson in Denare Beach Friday evening, which left one person dead, is connected to a string of other crimes.

RCMP responded to a second fire, this time at a home on Spruce Street at approximately 8 PM, where fire crews were already on the scene.

Mounties and the Coroner are working to determine the identity of the deceased and whether the death is considered suspicious.

The RCMP is asking the public to be vigilant in locking homes and vehicles.
