The fire stared at a home under construction and spread to three nearby homes, one of which was badly damaged.

“On arrival crews immediately struck a second alarm. There was a building under construction fully involved and it was effecting the neighbouring buildings on the north and south of that,” said District Chief Paul Colcy, Edmonton Fire Rescue.
