Two dead in explosion, fire in northwest Calgary

Arson and homicide units called in to help investigation

Two people died and a third was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after an explosion at a home in northwest Calgary Saturday.

Both the Arson Unit and the Calgary Police Service homicide unit are investigating and believe the fire, at a home in the 0-100 block of Kincora Drive NW, was not accidental. They believe the incident is the result of a domestic dispute and a suspect is not being sought at this time.

It happened around 2 p.m. Saturday after calls from neighbours reporting an explosion.

When crews arrived, they found two people had died and a third was injured. Paramedics took a woman to hospital in potentially life-threatening condition.

No further victims were located after the Calgary Fire Department finished their search.

Autopsies on the two victims are expected to be completed on May 27.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Calgary police homicide tip line at 403-428-8877 or the Calgary police non-emergency line at 403-266-1234.
