Following a lengthy investigation, Burin Peninsula RCMP arrested 41-year-old Natasha Parsons of Garnish for intentionally setting fire to a business back in November of last year.
On November 20, shortly before 9:00 a.m., Burin Peninsula RCMP was called to a fire at Senior’s Seaside Takeout and Gas Bar in Garnish. When officers arrived on scene the fire had been extinguished by the local fire department.
