Three people have been charged in connection to a fire outside of a business in Orillia last month.

Emergency crews were called to a business on Atherley Road and Gill Street on Aug. 12 after a fire broke out. After a month long investigation, the OPP arrested three men in connection to the fire.  

A 19-year-old Barrie man, a 19-year-old Orillia man and a 20-year-old Orillia man have been charged with arson.

The trio were released on a promise to appear before an Orillia court on Oct. 18.
