GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. — Police in Grande Prairie are investigating a number of suspicious fires that occurred early Sunday morning.

At approximately 3:00 a.m. on Sunday, police and fire crews were called to a vehicle and structure fire in the area of 90 Avenue and 99 Street. The home was occupied at the time, however all the home’s occupants were able to escape without sustaining any injuries.

Shortly after the fires were extinguished, emergency crews observed a second structure fire just a block away. Upon arrival, it was determined that the home was under renovations and was not occupied. An adjacent home also caught fire due to the heat from the blaze, and the home’s occupants had to be evacuated.
