Two people, one a firefighter, were injured when they fell off a ladder during a rescue at a Saskatoon house fire.
The Saskatoon Fire Department said they received a call Sunday evening of smoke coming from a house at 221 Ave. N South.
Crews said they arrived to find smoke coming from the three-storey home and were informed someone was still inside.
A search crew entered the home, fire department officials said, and a person was found in a second floor room.
Firefighters said they determined the safest way to rescue the person was out of a second floor window and onto a low slope roof.
As a firefighter was assisting the person down the ladder, they both fell to the ground, officials said.
The firefighter suffered a broken rib and collarbone. There is no word on the injuries the other person suffered.
Crews brought the fire under control in 26 minutes.
The fire, which caused an estimated $100,000 in damage, was caused by an improperly used extension cord that overheated.
