One youth is facing six counts of arson after three dumpster fires in Grande Prairie.

Grande Prairie RCMP say they and the Grande Prairie Fire Department responded to a call at the St. Clements School Wednesday night just after 10 p.m.

Police say they found two dumpsters on fire in the school parking lot and then found a third dumpster on fire in the parking lot of a gas station. All three fires were extinguished and there was only minimal damage caused.

Police arrested a 16 year-old male at the gas station. He was later released but is expected to appear in Grande Prairie Provincial Court at a later date.
