Police hope surveillance pictures will help identify a woman they are calling a person of interest in an investigation into a west Edmonton apartment fire last month.
The woman is described as being in her 40s, about 5’11” tall with a thin build. The pictures appear to show the woman carrying a pink or purple backpack.
Fire broke out in an apartment suite in the Westridge Estates B apartment complex in the area of 76 Avenue and 112 Street the morning of Thursday, Feb. 16.
Fire investigators determined the blaze was deliberately set. Damages were pegged at about $5.5 million.
Police are looking to speak with the woman in the surveillance pictures. They believe she may have more information about the fire.
