The local fire department was able to extinguish the blaze.
But it was deemed suspicious, and the Office of the Fire Commissioner was called in to investigate.
Shortly after 1 p.m., RCMP arrested Deryle Richard Johson, 39, of Brochet and charged him with arson to property, utter threats to property, three counts of resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer with a weapon, and failure to comply with a probation order.
In total, Johnson is facing 27 charges related to three separate incidents.
He will appear in Thompson Provincial Court on March 10, 2014.
