AIRDRIE, Alta. — RCMP have opened an arson investigation following nine fires in a bedroom community north of Calgary in the last two weeks.

The fires in Airdrie occurred in a parking lot, a garbage can, a newspaper stand, an unoccupied RV, a shed and in unoccupied townhomes under construction.

There were also blazes in straw bales and a barn.

RCMP Const. Jason Curtis says no injuries have been reported.

Police don't believe there is any connection between the areas or properties where the fires occurred.

No witnesses have come forward.

"We don't have any suspects at this point,'' said Curtis. "It would be purely speculation to say there was one person responsible, but obviously it's quite a coincidence to have so many fires in such a short time.''

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Airdrie RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
