Two boys, aged 12 and 15 years, have been charged in connection with a fire last fall at the Montreal Lake Cree Nation.

The blaze in the band administration building caused an estimated $450,000 damage.

RCMP Cpl. Rob King says the fire was noticed the morning of November 14th by someone outside the building.

King says the evidence that was uncovered that led to the charges will be revealed in court.

The suspects face charges of arson, break & enter and mischief.

They are due in court on May 3rd.
