Red Deer RCMP are looking for witnesses who were at the scene of Monday’s fire, which destroyed a low-income housing building, leaving about 20 people homeless.
The fire at 5129 50th Ave. started about 3 p.m. and drew firefighters from the city and Sylvan Lake and took about five hours to put out. No injuries were reported.
Due to fire and water damage, the building is considered uninhabitable and will be torn down.
“The Red Deer RCMP continue to investigate the cause of the fire, and would like to speak with anyone who may have been in the area around that time,” police said Thursday.
If you have information regarding the incident, contact Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575 or your local police.
