SASKATOON – A house fire caused quite a bit of smoke damage to a Meadowgreen neighbourhood home Friday, however everyone inside was able to get out safely. The Saskatoon Fire Department was initially called to the fire at around 5 p.m.
Fire crews arrived at 418 Avenue X South to see smoke coming from the bi-level home. Five people inside had evacuated the building but firefighters still searched inside the house to be sure it was vacant.
Fire crews found the source of the blaze in a bedroom on the top floor and extinguished it. An investigator determined that smoking materials started the fire somewhere around the bed.
Smoke and fire damage is estimated at $50,000.
No injuries were reported.
