CALGARY- Four people have been charged following a fire that destroyed a well-known Alberta restaurant.

Last August, the Chief Chiniki Restaurant just off the Trans-Canada Highway near Cochrane burned down. The estimated damage was over $1 million, and investigators said the fire was the result of arson.

Charges have since been laid against one adult, and three people under age 18 who cannot be named.

On Wednesday, Noelan Twoyoungmen, 22, pleaded guilty to one count of arson. He has been sentenced to two years in prison.
