Before that, crews battled a blaze in the 200 block of Ravelston Avenue West just before 2 p.m.  Everyone inside the house was able to evacuate and three people were assessed by paramedics at the scene, but did not need to go to hospital. The WFPS says an early investigation has found the fire was caused by an electrical malfunction.

And just minutes before that, a fire broke out on the roof of a three-storey apartment block in the 600 block of Panet Road. Residents were able to shelter in place in their suites and nobody was hurt.
