Apartment fire determined to be accidental
While police and fire and emergency services investigators could not pinpoint the exact cause of an apartment fire on St. George’s Avenue in Stephenville early Friday, they did determine it was accidental.
A trial date has been scheduled for a man charged in relation to an alleged altercation in Corner Brook nearly two years ago.
Evan John Power, 26, was charged with assault with a weapon, assault, uttering threats and resisting arrest after police responded to a disturbance on Woodbine Avenue in the Curling area of the city April 16, 2015.
According to police, a 20-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman sustained non-life-threatening injuries to their face, arms and body. The allegation is that Power assaulted them with a metal pipe.
The matter will go to trial April 26.
