Police are saying this morning that they have laid arson charges in connection with serious fire in a home on Louise Ave.
The fire was first reported mid-afternoon on Tuesday and there were posts in the attached discussion thread of it burning into the night.
Police say that during their response they approached a male occupant of the building who was watching the fire. In conversation the male is said to have admitted to starting the fire. He was subsequently charged with arson, lodged at Brandon Correctional Centre with a court appearance scheduled for today.
Firefighters worked into the cold February night and I understand that by the early morning hours the fire had been essentially put out.
