Arson charge laid

A 20 year old man from Kent Junction has been charged after an early morning fire there yesterday.

Four people were home at the time of the blaze in a house on Route 126. There was minor damage to the house but nobody was hurt.

The investigation quickly showed the fire was suspicious and a suspect was arrested about an hour later. Daniel Duguay of Kent Junction was in court yesterday and remaned in custody until this afternoon.

RCMP don’t believe this one is related to other suspicious fires in the area recently.
