Drumheller RCMP are trying to catch a suspected arsonist.
On February 13 at about 6:00 p.m. the Delia Fire Department responded to a structure fire just off Highway 851 approximately 6 km south of the village.
The building was an abandoned house, over 100 years old, and investigators have determined the fire and an explosion that occurred just in front of the house were deliberately set.
The explosive substance used, Tannerite, is available to the public and used by firearms enthusiasts, and may have sparked an accelerant resulting in the fire.
Tire tracks on the property indicated the person responsible was driving a pick-up truck or an SUV. RCMP and Fire are continuing the investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Drumheller RCMP detachment at 403-823-7590 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
