A home south of Edmonton went up in flames Friday morning, and investigators say it’s arson.
Crews got a call from a passerby, at around 1a.m. Friday, about a home engulfed in flames at Township Road 504 and Range Road 240, just east of Beaumont.
Leduc RCMP, Beaumont Fire Department and Leduc County Fire Department were able to put the blaze out, but the house and detached garage were destroyed by the fire.
No one was injured and the owners weren’t home at the time.
Mounties spent most of Friday investigating, and found that the fire was set intentionally.
The Leduc General Investigation Section is still investigating but are asking for public help.
If anyone has information about the arson, please contact Leduc RCMP at (780) 980-7267, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. tl
