PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. – A teen is facing an arson charge after an investigation into a suspicious fire at a Prince Albert, Sask. apartment building.

The fire happened at the Hilltop Towers apartment building in the 300-block of 32nd Street during the evening of Aug. 26.

Police say it caused minimal damage and did not require a response from the fire department.

A joint investigation was launched due to recent arson activity in the building.

On Friday, a 14-year-old youth was charged with one count of intentionally or recklessly causing damage to property by fire.

He is scheduled to appear in Prince Albert provincial court on Sept. 15. His name has not been released under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Two other fires, on July 10 and 17, remain under investigation.
