Wood Buffalo RCMP have completed damage assessments on properties in Thickwood and Dickinsfield after a fire and explosion, respectively, impacted several homes in those neighbourhoods.
A fire on Silin Forest Road affected 3 condominium complexes across from Father Mercredi High School, with 1 fourplex lost and 3 units damaged.
An explosion in a home on Clenell Crescent in Dickinsfield affected seven other homes on nearby Dickins Drive.
RCMP have yet to determine the causes of the two separate May 16th incidents and investigations are ongoing.
Authorities have attempted to contact the owners of each home affected, though they have not yet had success in reaching anyone.
Homeowners in the affected areas are being advised to consult the Fire Assessment Tool to determine if their property was damaged or lost.
