For immediate release: February 7, 2020 - 4:29am

The Saskatoon fire Department responded to a reported house fire in the 1900 Block of 22nd Street West at approximately 2:40 this morning. Three Fire Engines, one Ladder Truck, one Heavy Rescue Unit, one Fire Investigation Unit, and one Battalion Chief were dispatched to the incident.

Fire Crews arrived on scene within 4 minutes of being dispatched. Upon arrival, flames and  black smoke was seen coming from the rear of the house. First arriving fire crews made a transitional attack through the main level windows to knock down the fire and reduce the temperatures in the building. Fire crews had to remove plywood from the windows to continue to attack the fire. Fire crews performed searches of each level in the house, finding no occupants. The fire was quickly brought under control, fire crews had to preform extensive overhaul to completely extinguish the fire.

A Fire Investigator is currently on scene working to determine a cause and a damage estimate.

There were no injuries as a result of this incident.
