Business owners are still waiting for answers more than a year after flames destroyed eight businesses in a north Edmonton strip mall.

Last Christmas, a fire started in the Bonanza restaurant at 125th Street and 137th Avenue, spreading to a nearby strip mall

The flames caused an estimated $12 million in damages.

Investigators said a truck was driven through the front of the restaurant, but the driver took off.

Nearby store and restaurant owners had to shut down their businesses for days. 

And, as CBC’s Travis McEwan reports, they now say they still want to know more about exactly what happened.
