Charges have been laid against three Saguenay teenagers who tried to light a girl on fire Friday night.

Police say the teens appear to have planned their attack on the 12-year-old victim.

On Friday evening, she showed up at one of the suspect's homes with a friend, where the teens confronted her.

Police say they doused the girl with gasoline contained in empty beer bottles, and lit several matches.

The girls escaped, and their parents alerted authorities.

Police are investigating the incident.

The teens are said to have known each other.
