Police have arrested one man after a pair of fires broke out in New Waterford on Monday night.

A 30-year old New Waterford man was arrested in connection with a suspicious fire at the Rack & Roll Club on Plummer Avenue. Employees at the club were able to put out the fire, which was set outside the business.

Police are also investigating another suspicious fire that occurred at a vacant home on Park Street about two hours later.

The structure was fully engulfed when emergency personal arrived on site. It was the fourth time in a couple of months that New Waterford Fire has been called to this home.

For safety reasons, the fire department will make arrangements later this morning to have the home taken down.
