At 11:30 a.m., emergency crews were also called to 170 Bridge St. to a decommissioned sewage treatment plant owned by the township.

According to Loyalist fire Chief Fred Stephenson, witnesses saw a group of up to six young men running out of the building.

Stephenson says the group broke into the building and a fire broke out, causing significant damage to the roof.
