Cranbrook RCMP is troubled after three separate grass fires ignited in a span of three days.
Mounties were called to a blaze around 2 AM Saturday at the end of 27th Ave S.
The fire covered an area of roughly one thousand square feet just off the Rotary Trail which is close to homes.
Officers returned to the area around 5 AM that morning due flames that stretched nearly 400 square feet on a vacant lot near 30th avenue south.
Police attended a third fire Monday once again on 30th Ave S.
This blaze was approximately 100 square feet in size.
Cst. Katie Forgeron says due to the high fire danger rating in our region they are very concerned.
Forgeron says they are working to determine if these incidents are connected since they are in the same area.
She says their suspicions are up but admits they aren’t sure what exactly happened at this time.
The local Mountie also notes they don’t know what caused the flames to ignite either and are continuing to investigate in collaboration with the Cranbrook Fire Department.
Police are looking for witnesses who may have observed anything suspicious during the times of these occurrences.
If anyone has any information about these fires, you are asked to contact the Cranbrook RCMP or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or email your TIPS to firstname.lastname@example.org
