Mountains is investigating arson after log houses and trailers fire in a settlement in northern Alberta.
Just before 6am on Sunday, the Peace Regional RCMP was summoned to a building fire in Little Buffalo with the fire department.
When the officers arrived, the log house and the adjacent trailer were completely swallowed. There were no residents in the house or trailer, and no injuries were reported.
