One person died during Friday’s fire. A second victim, believed to be an employee of the youth facility, has since died in hospital, the OPP said.
The suspect, a youth who is in police custody, was charged with one count of second-degree murder on Saturday.
Police added another count of second-degree murder and a charge of arson causing bodily harm on Monday.
