Winnipeg police have made an arrest in connection with a weekend rooming house fire that killed four and left two others critically injured.
Lulonda Lynn Flett, 40, has been charged with four counts of second-degree murder and four counts of attempted murder, police said Sunday. Flett was arrested in a Main Street bar on Saturday, police said.
Officials examining the charred facade said the fire likely started near the front entrance, possibly on the veranda, blocking an obvious escape route. The front of the structure was ablaze when firefighters arrived.
Police said Sunday a witness saw someone using something flammable to light the blaze early Saturday morning.
