A fire that began before 5 a.m. on Monday damaged a home in the Ambleside neighbourhood.
Edmonton Fire Rescue Services was called to 2517 Anderson Way on Monday morning after neighbours saw flames shooting from the top of the roof.
“I just heard a noise, like a thump. I (didn’t) know what it was … and then I just saw the lights,” said Carlos Mejia, a neighbour.
“We saw the house was already on fire. A pretty big one. And then the trucks just kept rolling in.”
Firefighters confirmed there was no one in the house when they arrived but said they evacuated both neighbouring homes as a precaution.
The fire was considered out at 6:37 a.m., Edmonton Fire said.
Both neighbouring homes were saved with only minor damage to the siding, said Edmonton Fire officials.
Global News sees Drastic damage to the affected home was apparent including the roof being gone.
A fire had occurred at this home previously on Aug. 24, but the previous fire was not as intense, said Edmonton Fire.
Edmonton Fire confirmed there were no injuries and the cause of the fire is currently undetermined.
