For immediate release: August 24, 2019 - 2:40pm

At approximately 11:20 A.M. August 24, 2019 the Saskatoon Fire Department received multiple 911 calls reporting a garage fire at 2413 Albert Ave.  Three engines, 1 aerial, 1 heavy rescue and a battalion chief responded to the scene.  Heavy thick black smoke was reported as visible by the responding units during their response.  On arrival fire crews made a defensive attack on the fire as flames and heavy smoke exited through the roof.  Two vehicles were inside at the time of the fire along with two barrels of fuel and a tank of acetylene.  Heat from the flames also caused damage to the home, the fence and the neighbouring garage.  The garage roof collapsed into the garage during the fire.  Fire crews had the fire under control in 27 minutes.

There were no injuries as a result of this fire, a Fire Investigator is on scene.  At this time the cause of the fire has not been determined and a damage estimate is not available  yet.
