Thunder Bay police have charged a 24-year-old man with arson and mischief after a fire at a social housing complex on Frederica Street West.
Fire crews responded to a 911 call at the building at approximately 3:17 a.m. on Sunday, according to a release. They quickly located and extinguished the fire in the bedroom closet of a three-bedroom apartment.
No one was hurt in the fire, but fire damaged the contents of the closet and smoke damaged the bedroom.
The accused is due to appear in Thunder Bay Provincial Court Monday morning.
