Oak Bay resident could face another set of arson charges

A 25-year-old woman who faced charges in the summer is in custody again for Monday fire

A local resident has arson charges being recommended against her for the second time.

Oak Bay Police and Fire attended a call for a car cover on fire on Jan. 7. The car was located within a carport on Frederick Norris Road. Officers arrested a 25-year-old female who was known to them, as they recommended arson charges against her previously for fires set in the same area.

No one was injured during the incident.
