At 12:44 p.m. on Mar­ch 28, officers resp­onded to a report of suspicious fire in a common room at Ald­erney Manor located at 1 Alderney Drive. Residents attempted to put out the fire with a fire extingu­isher but were unable to do so. Halifax Fire and Emergency was called and deemed the fire suspicious. Fire investigators notified police that the fire was suspi­cious.
