Summerside Police Services is investigating a suspicious fire on the roof of École-Sur-Mer over the weekend.

At about 1 a.m. on Sunday, May 24, police and Sumerside fire and rescue were sent to the school on Maris Stella Avenue.  

Police and fire firefighters searched for the source and discovered smoke on the roof of the building, said Summerside Fire Chief Ron Enman.
