Multiple fires set at Saskatoon mental health centre

Saskatoon fire crews were scrambling on New Year's Day after multiple small fires were set inside the Dubé Centre for Mental Health.

The calls came in at 12:49 p.m. CT.

When crews arrived at the 2nd floor of the building at 103 Hospital Dr., they found small fires had been set in three rooms and a hallway.

The fires had been extinguished by then, but smoke had to be cleared out of the 2400 wing of the building.

Patients from the affected wing were moved to a safe location inside the Dubé Centre.

Nobody was injured. The damage is estimated at around $7,000.

Fire investigators say there were nine points where fires were set.

There was no immediate word on whether anyone has been taken into custody.
