Small fire in the 1300 Block of Avenue C North
On May 28, 2022 at 10:08 a.m., the Saskatoon Fire Department (SFD) received a call of an extinguished fire that involved a garage. One fire engine responded to assess the scene. It was confirmed that the fire was very small and extinguished. Fire crews believe the incident happened during the early morning hours. A fire investigator was dispatched to the scene as evidence was present of the fire being suspicious.
Fire Investigator has determined an attempt had been made to light the garage on fire but its exterior cladding is non-combustible. The stucco exterior did not support fire growth and there was no other combustible material in its path to burn. Once the "molotov cocktail" which is constructed using a container and flammable liquid lit on fire had burnt down, the fire went out. Damage is $100 due to soot staining.
If anyone has information about this attempted fire, please call the Saskatoon Police Service at 306-975-8300.
