City Towing & Recovery Has Truck Burnt for Second Time in One Year – Tow Truck Wars in Cornwall Ontario? May 20, 2013

BURNT TOW TRUCKCFN – Fire struck the peaceful neighborhood in the East End of Cornwall Ontario for the second time this year as the only tow truck owned by City Towing was burnt to a crisp.

This is the fifth incident involving tow truck firms in Cornwall with a few more allegedly not reported to police who are staying mum on any details.

As one person I spoke with said; we can’t arrest anyone if we don’t have any proof.   The irony is that this truck was torched in a fairly open and dense area with neighbors and dogs living close nearby.

Some people at the site this morning were suggesting  a collection to offer a reward to help find the arsonist(s)

We expect an update from Cornwall Police Tuesday.

Police officer sifts through debris looking for clues.

Fire around 4:45 AM

  1. Good “on the spot” holiday weekend reporting admin. I think an organization of local francophone unionists is responsible as the victim was obviously able to speak English and had a tastefully landscaped yard, free of the “bathtub Madonna” {MODERATED}

    If you know what I mean and I think that you do, Frere.

  3. Once again..far better coverage on this site
    Thank goodness the house didn’t catch fire..this is really scary
    Time for a video camera system…these people need to be caught

  4. Thats really to bad that this was the 2nd fire for this tow truck company but im just curious as to what she meant when she replied, “it was kind of not a surprise..” when asked if she was devestated….

  5. I’m certain what was ment by that was the fact that this is now there 2nd truck & 3 of Metro Towings trucks that have been burnt so far with out any arrests or convictions! So ya ask yourself this will you be surprised if there is a 6th ?

  6. Towtruck wars. I’m sure they have a pretty good idea who did it, it is just to get the proof. In fact I would bet most towtruck companies know what company is responsible. Rumors are running for a second time around!

  7. I agree, chances of a 6th fire quite possible, also agree Tow Operators/Owners that have had things happen to them whether fires or vandalism, local Police and most citizens know who the culprits are but until there is proof, there will be no justice. It’s only a matter of time it will get out and they will get what’s coming to them!

  8. What scares the hell out of me..is
    If my wife’s car breaks down….who….is going to show up to tow her car…pray to baby jesus that it isn’t the person doing this

  9. This is just terrible. They should not park their truck in a residential area anymore.

  10. I disagree with the comment that the victim has a tastfully landscape yard. That’s actually not their yard in the background.
