Calgary police looking for leads in 2-year-old arson

Calgary police have released video of a 2015 house fire in the hopes that someone who may have heard or seen something will come forward.


Calgary police hope that a video of a 2015 house fire in Elboya will encourage Calgarians who may have heard or seen something to come forward two years later.

The fire, which occurred on Oct. 24, 2015 at a home in the 4200 block of Elbow Drive S.W., was deemed to be suspicious. But so far police have made no arrests in the case.

“It has been nearly two years since this fire,” Det. Wally Niewchas said on Tuesday. “Our hope is that during the past couple years, people may have heard someone speak about it, or may have witnessed someone in the area and not yet come forward.

“Allegiances change. People talk. We hope someone does the right thing and comes forward.”

In a statement, Calgary police said they have released the video as part of a review of unsolved arson cases.

Niewchas said it was a “very serious fire” and that it’s lucky no one was hurt.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or contact Crime Stoppers.
