Arson is suspected in many Alberta fires. On April 30, Alberta RCMP arrested John Cook, a resident of Cherry Grove. Cook, 29, was charged with 10 counts of arson.
Moreover, on Wednesday, Parkland County’s Twitter account said that 4 fires in five days were suspicious.
“We need your help! Our firefighters have responded to 4 fires in 5 days that appear to be intentionally set, north of Hwy 16 between Rge Rd 30 and Rge Rd 32,” the account said.
