A 41 year old man has been arrested in connection with a fire last month in Welland that led to the discovery of explosives.
Emergency Crews responded to a home on Park Street on October 16th that was fully engulfed in fire. As they were extinguishing the flames, firefighters found several Improvised Explosive Devices.
That caused the evacuation of the neighbouring area for several hours while the IED’s were neutralized.
Jason Grant of Welland is facing charges of Arson, Mischief Endangering Life, Possession of Explosives for Unlawful Purpose and Explosives with Intent to Cause an Explosion.
