Calgary police are asking the public for information about two arson incidents that happened last month that they say were separate and unrelated.

In the first incident, a green 1999 Ford Windstar was found burned-out and abandoned under the Bonnybrook Bridge near the 4300 block of Ogden Road S.E. shortly after 6 p.m. on Oct. 11, police said Friday.

In the second incident, a fire broke out in the exterior parking lot of an apartment complex in the 800 block of First Avenue N.W. on Oct. 23 shortly before 3 a.m.

It destroyed three vehicles and caused severe damage to the interior and exterior of the apartment complex, police said. The preliminary estimate of the damage is close to $1 million.

Security camera footage from the area showed an unknown person entering the parking lot about half an hour before the fire. The person travelled to and from the area on a purple Reebok-brand bike, police said.

Anyone with information about either of these incidents is asked to contact Calgary police at 403-266-1234.
