On July 6th, 2012 at 03:45 AM, Blue Hills area RCMP from the Brandon detachment, were dispatched to a utility storage shed fire in an alley on Simcoe street, in the town of Carberry. The fire was first observed by a neighbour who alerted the property owners and called 911. Police and the Carberry Fire Department were both on scene and were able to extinguish the blaze that had caused significant damage to the structure and shed contents. The shed contained various household and antique items. No one was injured in the fire, and damage estimates are not available at this time. RCMP and the Manitoba Office of the Fire Commissioner are investigating and have deemed the fire to be suspicious in nature.

By providing information that Crime Stoppers will share with law enforcement agencies, you are providing an important and valuable public service. We understand that disclosure of your identity might put you at risk. We do everything we can to protect your anonymity. However, that anonymity may be open to challenge in the following situations:
- A call to Crime Stoppers made with the intention of “furthering criminal activity or interfering with the administration of justice”. A party who is guilty of a crime cannot use Crime Stoppers to try to divert the blame onto someone else. Crime Stoppers cannot be used to try to “frame” an innocent person.
- There is evidence that disclosure of some or all of a tip is necessary to establish someone’s innocence.
- A tipster having received the benefit of full legal advice may, for his or her own reasons, elect to waive the privilege.
