House fire in Silverspring
The Saskatoon Fire Department received a 911 call at 2:14 pm on Sunday December 27, 2020, the call reporting fire in a wall. Dispatched to the scene were three engines, a ladder, rescue, battalion chief and fire investigator.
First arriving firefighters observed smoke coming from a home on the 200 block of Rever Road. A walk around the building discovered fire venting form a rear window, soon followed by fire breaking out of a second window.
Fire crews began by applying water through windows to knock down the flames, followed quickly by entering the homes and attacking the seat of the fire. A search of the interior confirmed all occupants had evacuated.
The fire investigation has been completed and determined the fire started in a wall above a wood stove. Damage caused by the fire is estimated at $275,000.00.
