Edmonton police looking for person of interest in Hangar 11 fire

Edmonton Police Service (EPS) are looking to identify a person of interest in the recent fire at Hangar 11.

On the evening of April 22, a fire occurred at the Hangar 11 building. This historic hangar was one of two left standing following the end of the Second World War.

Despite over 40 firefighters on the scene, the hangar was destroyed in the blaze.

“The loss of this historical landmark is not only devastating for the aviation community, but the community in general,” said Detective Nigel Phillips of the EPS Southwest Investigative Response Team. “A significant piece of history was lost, and we would like to determine what happened.”

The fire is now deemed suspicious, with police looking to identify a man who they consider to be a person of interest, releasing photos of the man to the public.

“We would like to speak with this individual,” added Phillips. “We believe this man may have pertinent information that could assist with our investigation.”

Anyone with information on the identity of the man is asked to contact EPS at 780-423-4567.
