Two men have been charged after a lengthy investigation into a Kitimat arson case.
RCMP say the family of a Bayer St. home escaped an early-morning fire on April 12, 2014 thanks to a passerby that alerted them.
After nearly a year-long probe, Mounties say 24 year-old Nicholas Ferguson and 22 year-old Thomas Finnie have been charged with arson.
Ferguson also faces an additional charge of possession of an incendiary material (gasoline) for the purpose of committing arson.
Investigators say both suspects have been arrested and are in custody.
