Edmonton police are investigating after a wooden swastika was found burning in the city's southwest over the Easter weekend.

A driver made the call to police early Monday morning after a six-by-six feet tall burning swastika was spotted at Anthony Henday westbound near the Rabbit Hill Road exit, reports Global News.

Staff Sgt. Todd Leycock told The Calgary Sun it was a "shocking" sight.

Fire crews quickly put out the fire, and the police have transferred the investigation to the Edmonton Police Hate Crimes Unit, according to Metro Edmonton.

Police would like anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
