Edmonton fire crews were called to a two-alarm fire at an abandoned home near the Alberta legislature early Sunday morning.
The call initially came in around 4:15 a.m. for the fire at 97 Avenue and 111 Street.
A second alarm was called just before 5 a.m., with 11 crews being called in to help battle the blaze.
It was deemed under control at 7 a.m.
There were no reports of injuries and the home had been slated for demolition.
Neighbours said the home was previously that of Dr. Joseph Moreau, a prominent Edmonton orthopedic surgeon who had a school named after him in the city’s southeast in 2009. Moreau died in 2015 at the age of 95.
