An Arnprior woman has been charged with arson after a weekend fire in an apartment in the town. 

The OPP announced yesterday that they’ve arrested and charged 46 year old Orpha Breen after a fire Saturday night on Sheffield Street.

The Arnprior Chronicle Guide reported that 26 firefighters responded to the fire, at a community living apartment complex, where a mattress and curtains had been on fire.   The newspaper reported that staff had already emptied a fire extinguisher and closed the door.

Damage was around 50-thousand dollars and limited to one apartment. 

Breen was scheduled for a court appearance in Pembroke for a bail hearing on Monday.
