A Russell Man Was Back In Court On Arson Charges

Another court appearance has been made by a man, charged with setting the oldest house in Russell on fire. 23-year-old Liam Flett had his matters adjourned to March 23rd. In January of last year, RCMP were called to Pelly Avenue, where firefighters were battling a blaze that had fully engulfed the structure, built in 1888. 2 hours later, call came in to 911, in which a man said he started the fire, gave his location, and was found with a container of what was believed to be gasoline.
