A Russell Man Charged With Arson Was Back In Court

A new court date has been set for a man arrested in connection with a fire at the oldest house in Russell. In January of last year, RCMP were called to the scene on Pelly Avenue, where firefighters were battling a blaze that had fully engulfed the structure, built in 1888. About two hours later, a 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. 23-year-old Liam Flett of Russell, had a court appearance yesterday, where his matters were adjourned to July 20th.
