Arson charge laid in North Glengarry fire

(Newswatch Group/File)

DALKEITH – A North Glengarry man is facing a number of charges, including arson, after a house fire last week north of here.

SD&G O.P.P. officers were called to a home on Breadalbane Road Aug. 18 after reports of someone being threatened.

When officers got to the scene, the house was on fire, but they were able to put out the flames.

A man from North Glengarry, 68, is now facing charges of arson, assault with a weapon and two counts of uttering threats.

He was held for a bail hearing in a Cornwall court and has since been released.

Because of the domestic nature of the case, police are not releasing the name of the accused.
