In the early morning hours of June 20, 2022, an off-duty RCMP officer observed a fire outside the Innisfail School Campus and the adjacent skate park. The Innisfail fire department attended both scenes and quickly extinguished the fires. 

RCMP were able to determine that the school campus had been broken into; a large jug of hand sanitizer was stolen and used to start fires in a garbage can outside of the school and a porta-potie at the skate park. The RCMP investigation has led to the arrest of two Innisfail youths aged 15 and 16. 

The youths have been charged with:

  • Break and enter;
  • Arson x 2;

Both have been released from custody on conditions and are scheduled to appear at Red Deer Provincial Court on July 28, 2022.
