Global News has learned a third life has been lost after a house fire in the community of Kincora earlier this year that police believe was intentionally set.
The fire in the 0-100 block of Kincora Drive N.W. claimed the lives of Heidar Dehdari, 56, and his daughter, 22-year-old Dorsa Dehdari, in May.
Dehdari’s other daughter, 15-year-old Dorna, suffered life-threatening injuries in the fire.
Global News confirmed on Tuesday that Dorna had succumbed to her injuries the day before.
On Tuesday, the Dehdari family released a statement via police confirming Dona’s passing.
“We appreciate all of the support we have received from members of the community. We ask for our privacy to be respected at this time.”
Police said no charges will be laid and they are not searching for any additional suspects.

Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta told reporters at a news conference there was a lot of “domestic tension” in the home which led to a “violent confrontation” on Saturday, May 25.
Schiavetta said investigators were unsure if Dehdari intended to kill himself in the fire.
The entire family — including Heidar — lived in the home at the time of the incident.
Schiavetta said the mother, Leila Dehdari, was not home at the time.
Court documents show Leila had filed for divorce in April after the couple, who were married for 27 years, separated a short while earlier.
According to Schiavetta, police had been called to the home once before for a “domestic event” in December 2018, which was “verbal in nature.”
Anyone with information on the fire is being asked to contact police at 403-266-1234.
