Youth entering plea in school fire
A youth, charged with arson under the Young Offenders Act, will enter a plea at Provincial Court in Grand Bank June 24.
The young man was arrested last week in connection with a fire at Pearce Junior High School in Burin June 2. He appeared in court Wednesday and was released.
The fire was set in an upstairs washroom just prior to the school closing down for the day, and caused some smoke damage inside. The school was shut down for a number of days to repair and clean the building.
