-Ponoka RCMP have charged a 60-year old man in connection with fires in that region. One of them was a recent grass fire in town. The other dates back to last October. That one destroyed a garage. Mounties say at this time of year–it doesnt take long for a simple grass fire–to turn into something terrifying. The suspect is due in court next month.
