20-05965

At approximately 2:23 p.m. on May 24, 2020, the Saskatoon Fire Department received multiple 911 calls with reports varying from smoke in the area to multiple residential structures on fire. Three fire engines, one rescue unit, one aerial ladder truck, one fire investigation unit, and one battalion chief were dispatched for immediate response.

Prior to the arrival of fire crews, bystanders were reported to be successfully extinguishing the fire. Upon arrival, a mostly extinguished fire that had caused notable damage to two residential structures was observed. All occupants had safely self-evacuated and no injuries were sustained. Firefighters verified that the fire had not extended further into either structure before establishing ventilation to clear smoke from the interior of one of the structures involved.

The fire is currently under investigation; a damage estimate is not yet available.
