Arsonist Responsible For 2017 Bridgewater Fire Released

Adrian Thomas Hunt, who was convicted for causing a fire that ravaged multiple buildings in Bridgewater, N.S. in 2017, is set to be released from prison once again.

Hunt had been sentenced to five years for arson with disregard for human life, as he had set the fire that destroyed five businesses and some apartments in the downtown area, which caused the death of three cats, but thankfully did not cause any harm to humans.

Hunt had previously been released on day parole in 2021, but was later taken back into custody for violating his parole conditions, which involved skipping work and indulging in drugs and casual sex with women.

Having served most of his sentence, Hunt is now set to be released on statutory release, with special conditions imposed on him by the Parole Board of Canada.

These conditions include abstaining from drugs and alcohol, following a curfew between midnight to 6 a.m., and having no contact with known criminals or victims of the fire. The board also emphasized the importance of the curfew, as both the fire and Hunt’s previous parole violations had occurred during the night.
