Fire was deliberately set in a trash can outside of Tim Hortons at 601 Brant St. on Jan. 25, say Halton police, causing an estimated $250,000 in damage.
But investigators now say damage estimates exceed $600,000.
One suspect was released without charges after investigators concluded he wasn’t involved in setting the blaze, police said Monday.
