SASKATOON – Due to the close proximity of two suspicious fires, Saskatoon investigators believe two kids are responsible for setting both.
Firefighters were busy Monday evening battling two separate suspicious fires a block apart in Saskatoon.
The first fire broke out around 7:50 p.m. in the alley of the 300-block of Avenue T South where a grass fire spread to a fence and a storage shed, causing an estimated $2,000 in damage. It took crews eight minutes to bring the fire under control.
Minutes later, firefighters were called to another blaze at a garage in the 400-block of Avenue T South.
Flames were visible and the fire had extended to the attic. The blaze was brought under control in 14 minutes. Damage is estimated at $15,000.
No injuries were reported.
The police arson unit and a fire inspector continue to investigate.
