ESTEVAN - The Estevan Police Service has charged a 17-year-old Estevan female for arson, in connection with a shed fire in the 400-block of First Street on Oct. 2.
The Estevan Fire Rescue Service attended and put out the fire before it caused extensive damage to neighbouring properties and a utility pole. The accused, who cannot be named in accordance with the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, will appear in court in December.
She will face one charge of intentionally or recklessly causing damage, by fire, to property under the Criminal Code.
With charges laid in connection with this incident, it is now believed that the garbage bin fires that happened a few days earlier are separate in nature and remain under investigation. Anyone with knowledge or information in relation to these fires are asked to call the Estevan Police Service or Crime Stoppers.
