Police working around Winnipeg Beach now say the fatal fire that killed a 90-year-old was arson.

Just talked to a neighbour two houses down from the fire.

He says whoever did it targeted his car and boat first and left lit matches burning on them.

Luckily, the wax-based matches didn’t light and his stuff wasn’t destroyed.

Police have fingerprinted his car in their hunt for a suspect.

People in the community are in shock that a suspected arsonist is still out roaming around.

One said the talk of the community is of a hooded suspect seen fleeing the area of the house fire.

RIP Patrick Gallagher.

What a horrible, detestible – way to die.
