Fires cause $6.6M damage across city overnight

Hot Time In The City

The "no duh" part of the story doesn't occur until the very last paragraph of the story in the Ottawa Citizen:
All three fires are being treated as suspicious and are being investigated by the arson unit. Ottawa Paramedics said they took a man with third-degree burns to 90 per cent of his body to hospital from a hotel in the west end Friday morning. Police were not drawing any link between the unidentified man and the fires.
No, a completely burned man in the same area as a four alarm blaze has to be a total coincidence.
