Arson unit investigating "suspicious" fire at Pharma Plus store on Greenbank Road

Ottawa Police arson investigators and fire investigators are now looking into a blaze at a Pharma Plus store. The fire has been deemed suspicious.

Firefighters got the call around 7:15 a.m. Sunday for alarms sounding at 900 Greenbank Road.

They declared a working fire when they arrived at the Barrhaven Mall. There was also heavy smoke, but the store's sprinklers kept the fire from spreading.

The blaze was under control by 7:40 a.m.

Ottawa Fire says there's no damage estimate available now but smoke and water damage is extensive. There is also some minor smoke damage to two other nearby businesses.

There were still nine fire trucks with 33 personnel on-scene Sunday morning monitoring the situation.

There were no reported injuries and the building was empty at the time and all stores were closed.
