Whitecourt RCMP say a fire that burned a home to the ground on Range Road 115 in Woodlands County, appears to have been deliberately set.
Firefighters were called to the scene just before 6 a.m., Saturday, to find the home fully engulfed in flames.
It then got even more dangerous for them, with small explosions from inside the home believed to have been discharging ammunition due to the heat.
There were no reported injuries due to the explosions or the fire.
Anyone with possible leads in the arson investigation is asked to contact Whitecourt RCMP or Crime Stoppers. (td)
