UPDATE: Hells Angels Clubhouse Fire Considered Arson


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – In a not-so-surprising announcement, the fire that roasted the Hells Angels Clubhouse, and neighbouring Rizzo’s Cabinets has been deemed arson.

The fire, mostly smoke and water damage, also contributed to the closure of the “Underground Gym”.

Today, the fire office of the fire marshal turned the case over to the Thunder Bay Police Service. Investigators say they found signs of foul play in the aftermath of the blaze.

The Major Crimes Unit has taken over the case and are investigating who started the fire.

There have been roughly 8 fires in the last 2 months in the area, including a few on Simpson Street itself.

Residents in the area are worried that perhaps southern Ontario gangs may be involved. The Bethune street blaze that claimed the life of Chris Witzell, along with  two other fires that engulfed suspected trap houses are indicating that something serious and criminal is happening in the area.

Below is all our coverage of the fire.

  1. This doesn’t come as a surprise. There’s been quite a string of suspicious fires in that vicinity in a very short period of time.

    Surprised nothing has been caught on camera. People need to start setting up trail cameras in the city to get pics of suspicious activity. Good game cameras can be bought for $100,00 to $200.00 and are easily concealed plus they work day and night. Great tools for gathering evidence.
