Police are turning to the public to help with information related to three suspicious fires over a 12-hour period.
In a release Monday, Wetaskiwin RCMP said they are investigating three separate, suspicious fires that happened between 5 p.m. Nov. 19 and 5 a.m. Nov. 20.
“While very early in the investigations, based on the proximity of these fires to one another and the relatively short time frame between fires, RCMP believe that all three fires are suspicious and potentially related to the same suspect,” the RCMP said in a press release.
The first fire, on Nov. 19, police were called around 5:21 p.m., was a vacant shed on 45 Avenue and 57 Street.
The second fire was at a detached garage on 50 Avenue and 54 Street around 10 p.m. Sunday.
The third fire took place at a vacant commercial building on 49 Avenue and 55 Street place around 4:32 a.m. on Nov. 20.
