CALGARY — WestJet says early results of an investigation into an ice chunk that crashed through a Calgary home indicate one of its planes is to blame.

Airline spokeswoman Lauren Stewart said in an email that a preliminary investigation has concluded the ice on Friday evening fell from a WestJet plane on approach into Calgary from Regina.

Stewart said WestJet is inspecting the aircraft to determine the cause of the incident and is cooperating with local authorities and Nav Canada, the agency that is responsible for Canada’s civilian air navigation service.

Calgary’s fire department said the incident was originally reported as an explosion, but as the residents investigated further, they found a hole in their ceiling and fragments of ice on their basement stairs.
