The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a person of interest who may have valuable information about a fire that destroyed a historic hangar last week.

On Monday, Apr. 22, 2024, at approximately 6.50 p.m., a fire occurred at the Hangar 11 building located at 11760 109 Street NW. The hangar, which was one of only two remaining from the Second World War era, was completely destroyed in the fire. 

“The loss of this historical landmark is not only devastating for the aviation community, but the community in general,” says Det. 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 being investigated as suspicious and police are looking to identify a man who is considered a person of interest:

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


Anyone who knows the identity of the person of interest is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250
