After releasing the photo of the three individuals, police say those people have come forward and provided witness statements to investigators. They are not considered suspects in the fire.
Arson investigators are seeking help in tracking down three individuals who may be related to a fire that destroyed nearly two-dozen condo units in south Calgary’s McKenzie Towne over the weekend.
Fire crews were called to the scene of a blaze at a condo construction site around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
The massive fire ultimately destroyed 22 condo units, damaged 13 others and melted parts of several nearby vehicles.
While the cause of the fire has yet to be determined, Staff Sgt. Bruce Walker of the Arson Unit said police are releasing a photo of three individuals who were seen at the northwest corner of the construction site where a second fire broke out.
“Right now, the way the investigation is, they should have some information regarding the possibly the fire itself, the cause of it,” he said. “We’re hoping the gentlemen will come forward.”
Walker was unable to say where the image of the three individuals was taken.
He said investigators would be sweeping the scene over the coming days to determine where and how the fire originated.
The total value of damages is estimated at between $3 million to $4 million.
Those with information related to the fire are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
