The case for 19-year-old Jack Noel Sandy, who accused in the school house fire just outside Virden, has been put back to November 14.

A blaze broke out at an abandoned school located in the RM of Wallace-Woodworth, in the early morning hours of Sept. 24.

Around 3 a.m. on Sept. 24, Virden RCMP got a report of a structure fire at an abandoned property, known as Two Creeks School.

When crews arrived, the structure was engulfed in flames. Crews eventually extinguished the fire after several hours.

On Wednesday, while investigating an unrelated matter, officials arrested Jack Noel Sandy, of Virden.
He has been charged with multiple offences including arson in connection with the Two Creeks School fire.

Sandy has been charged with arson, break and enter and damage to property, in the blaze that gutted the abandoned school on September 24.

Twenty-two-year-old Dale Andrew Klassen was also arrested and will be in court Dec 8 on charges of arson and damage to property.
