House fire and stand-off on Snowy Owl Trail on Tuesday afternoon

From the Ottawa Sun:

A standoff at a Stittsville youth home has ended with the removal of a young woman. Ottawa fire crews, police and paramedics were called to the Snowy Owl Trail home just before 1 p.m., when the residence was set on fire.

Crews arriving at the scene were originally not able to get inside, but once they did gain entry they were quickly able to douse the flames,. As this was going on, they also ended up dealing with a female on the roof of the home who was screaming and throwing objects at them.

Police and a woman at the scene were able to get the female calmed down enough to remove her using a fire department aerial truck.

She was taken by police for assessment. The investigation continues.
