Investigation Continues for 2018 Massive Structure Fire in Cochrane’s Fireside Community

Cochrane, AB – The Cochrane RCMP General Investigation Section are again asking for the community of Cochrane to come forward with any information they may have regarding the massive structure fire that occurred in the Fireside community of Cochrane during the early morning hours of June 6, 2018.  “Information and details can come in all sizes, the information you have may not seem like much to you, but for the bigger picture it may be the piece we’re missing” said Constable Kary Moore with the Cochrane RCMP.


Residents provide the RCMP with local intelligence.  Members of the community know when there are strange vehicles in the area, suspicious behaviours being observed or knowledge of attempted and completed crimes.  The public is encouraged to report crimes that have been committed, no matter how small.  This feeds into the RCMP’s larger intelligence picture.

 If you have any information suspicious or otherwise, regarding the above fire, you are asked to please contact the Cochrane RCMP detachment at 403-851-8000 or to attend the Cochrane detachment and speak with one of our General Investigation Section members at 359-1st Street East.  If you have information about this, or any other crime(s), and you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at, or by SMS (check your local Crime Stoppers [] for instructions on how to do it.)  You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers, and if you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest(s), the recovery of stolen property, and/or a seizure of illicit drugs, you may be eligible for a cash reward.
