Girl, 15, charged with school arson

Tuesday, August 24, 2010


A 15-year-old girl from Moosomin First Nation has been charged with arson following an Aug. 18 fire that destroyed a school trailer.

The fire also damaged a building adjacent to the wrecked school trailer, the RCMP said.

The girl is scheduled to appear in North Battleford provincial court on Sept. 23.

It was the second time public buildings burned on the reserve this summer.

On June 23, the RCMP office was substantially damaged by an early morning fire, which the RCMP suspected was arson.

No one has been charged in connection with that fire.

Moosomin First Nation is about 35 kilometres north of North Battleford.
