The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
