Three teenagers have been charged with arson after several suspicious fires in Regina over the weekend.

On Saturday, firefighters were called to fires at a vacant house and a garbage bin on the 900 block of Garry Street.

Not long after, firefighters responded to a vehicle on fire on the 900 block of Stanley Crescent. All of the fires appeared to have been deliberately set.

After a police investigation, the three teenagers were arrested. They cannot be named in accordance with the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Two 14-year-old boys and a 13-year-old boy face a slew of charges including arson and break and enter to commit arson.

They will appear in Youth Court on March 29.
