XXXXXX Villa Fire

I could only post the ones that were under 100 MB.
This fire occurred Monday November 17 at approximately 3:00 - 3:30am. The fire department evacuated the building and the residents were taken by a city bus to an unknown destination to spend the night. From what I could tell at least a few units in the apartment were damaged.
On a related note and from the Lethbridge Herald Wednesday, November 19, 2008 (unnamed author):
"Grow op discovered during fire investigation
Two people are facing drug charges after a small marijuana grow operation was discovered while fire officials were investigating a blaze at Winston Villa apartments on Monday.
Members of the fire department discovered the grow op in one of the neighbouring suites located in the apartment complex. A search warrant unveiled 37 marijuana plants in the early stages of growth, along with 115 grams of packaged marijuana and a butterfly knife.
Ashley Miedema, 26, and Jarrid Gfrerer, 24, both of Lethbridge are charged with production of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, possession of marijuana and possession of a prohibited weapon.
The pair is scheduled to appear in Lethbridge provincial court Dec. 19."
If my math is correct that is around a quarter pound and they will probably receive a suspended sentence.
