Eco-terrorists spark worksite fire suspicion
A suspicious fire at a home under construction in Guelph could be the work of a radical environmental group known for sending political messages through arson.
Earth Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for an early-morning blaze set in a stairwell of the half-finished structure.
There was no graffiti left at the arson scene, and the eco-terrorist organization didn’t become a suspect until police were informed of an email sent to a Guelph newspaper.
The fire inside the unfinished home had almost died out by the time firefighters arrived, said Guelph Police Sgt. Ron Lord.
The U.S.-based extremist organization is considered by the FBI to be America’s biggest domestic terrorist threat, and has been linked by police to three other arsons in Guelph over the past seven months.
The email condemned the city for approving the construction of 1,200 new homes in 2006.
