RAMARA — A shed fire back in September now has police revisiting the case after trail cam video came to light showing two suspects beside the building.

And the OPP want to know if you can recognize them — because they can’t.

Provincial police are investigating the cause of the blaze that engulfed the small outbuilding at a residence on Canal Road, Ramara Township.

They say today that in the early hours of Sept. 15 flames consumed the structure, which is located off Hwy. 11 east of Brechin and Gamebridge on the Trent-Severn Waterway. Canal Road runs between Side Road 5 and Simcoe Road.

And at the time — 77 days ago — there was no indication that the damaged property was suspicious.

However, photos obtained from a nearby trail camera show two suspects in the area with what appears to be a gas can.

Officers have been unable to identify the two suspects and are asking for the assistance of the public.

Flames shoot up from an early morning fire in this photo released by police and which appear to show vehicle headlights partially hidden by trees on the left.
