The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to identify three individuals who may have information about a large condo fire that occurred in the city’s southeast on the weekend.
On Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012, around 2:30 a.m., emergency crews were called to the 600 block of McKenzie Towne Drive S.E. for reports of a fire. Multiple resources from the Calgary Fire Department and the Calgary Police Service worked throughout the morning to control the fire and ensure public safety.
During the fire, 22 condo units were destroyed and 13 others were damaged. As well, 14 vehicles and various pieces of construction equipment were damaged. Damages are currently estimated at between $3 million and $4 million.
The cause of the fire is still yet to be determined, however the Arson Unit is investigating.
Investigators believe three young men in the area at the time the fire occurred may have more information. A photo of them at a second fire on the northwest corner of the construction site that occurred near the condo fire can be found on the City of Calgary’s Newsroom.
The Calgary Police Service would like to thank members of the community and the media, for their assistance with the investigation.
Anyone who may know the identity of these individuals, or has any information relating to the fire, should call police or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
