Police have charged two men with arson after a fire engulfed an over 120-year-old church in Grouard, Alberta on May 22, 2023.

The St. Bernard Catholic Church, which was built in 1901 and designated as a provincial historical site, was badly damaged by the blaze, which authorities believe was intentionally set.

The RCMP were called to assist the local firefighters at the church approximately at 3:30 p.m. After spending six hours battling the flames, most of the structure and its contents were irrecoverable.
