2nd fire at Saskatoon hotel construction site
There has been a second fire in less than a month at a hotel under construction in Saskatoon.
A caller reported a fire on the top floor of the new Sandman Hotel on Lorne Avenue at around 9:30 p.m. CT.
Arriving firefighters found flame and embers on the northwest corner of the sixth floor.
An aerial ladder was used to reach the fire and put it out. Crews used a thermal imaging camera to check for any fire extension to other parts of the structure.
Damage is estimated at $2,000 and the cause remains under investigation.
