Two girls from the RM of Glenwood were arrested in connection to a fire that destroyed a barn near Souris Friday night.
RCMP say the barn, located about seven kilometres north of Souris in the RM of Glenwood housing a combine, was engulfed in flames just before 7:30 pm. when cops and local emergency crews showed up.
The building and equipment were totally destroyed by the fire and there were no injuries as a result of the blaze, police say.
RCMP did not provide damage estimates.
Both youth will be charged with mischief and have been released to their guardians on a promise to appear with an undertaking, with conditions to attend court in Brandon on June 10.
