While police have no updates on the June 22 deliberately-set fire that burned down the long-standing V&H restaurant in Lac La Biche, charges have been officially laid in connection to a second arson fire a day later that damaged a storage building in the community's downtown area.

Lac La Biche RCMP say 24-year old Lesley Cardinal from Beaver Lake is now facing a single count of arson in relation to the June 23 morning fire that damaged the exterior walls of a large storage building located alongside a downtown alleyway running parallel to Main Street. 

Cardinal has been held in custody until her June 29 court date.
