It was a busy month for Kenora Emergency Services in April. Inspector Jeff Duggan was named as the new the new detachment commander for the Kenora OPP. Duggan had been acting in the position since March, and wouldn't officially take over until May.
Emergency Services also responded to a fire at a building on the corner of Matheson and McLellan that, thankfully, saw no one injured but left 15 people without homes. The fire was found to be caused by faulty wiring.
A 27 year old man was arrested in late April, after he allegedly gained entry into a police cruiser, stole a police rifle and fired it. No one was injured in the incident.
A local dog also spent time in the back of a police cruiser. The dog, named Finn, had been picked up by police after taking off after a deer.
A photo of Finn in the back of the police car went viral with over 100,000 hits on twitter.
Finn was let go with just a warning to be a good dog.
