During the evening of May 1, a woman reported that her seasonal cabin in the Egmont area had been broken into over the winter months.  Several lawn and garden tools were stolen, and multiple windows were smashed. Police encourage owners of seasonal residences to remove valuables if possible, and to have a neighbour check their properties periodically if they will be unoccupied for extended periods of time. The sooner a break-in or theft is noticed, the better the chances are of gathering evidence and identifying a suspect.

The cause of the fire is suspected to be electrical.
