A 17 year old boy is facing an arson charge after a fire in north Central Regina early yesterday.
Just after midnight, the fire department was called to a vacant home on the 1000 block of Garnet after reports of smoke coming from the building.
A witness said he saw a man running away from the home. Police later located and arrested the 17 year old boy.
The boy, who cannot be named because of his age, made his first court appearance on the matter today.
