AIRDRIE, Alta. — Two 20-year-old men face charges of arson and break-and-enter in a string of fires in and around Airdrie, north of Calgary.

On Tuesday, officers responded to a dumpster fire in downtown Airdrie following a tip from the public that two suspicious men had been seen in the area.

There were several fires in the neighbourhood of Ravenswood on Monday night.

Nickolas Maschke of Calgary and Trevor Brown of Airdrie are to appear in court in Airdrie on Oct. 22.

Police say there have been nine fires in Airdrie over the past two weeks.

The fires have broken out in several locations, including an unoccupied R-V and at townhomes under construction, but no one has been hurt.
