Members of the Saskatoon Fire Department rescued three people from a burning building on Friday night.
Firefighters, the Saskatoon police and Medavie Health Services West paramedics were called to a fiery apartment building in the 2000 block of 20th Street West at 9 p.m., according to a police statement.
Upon arriving, first responders learned there were people still trapped inside, according to a release from the fire department.
A fire battalion chief told Global News firefighters rescued one person from the third floor and two others from the basement.
A search after that revealed no one else was inside. Other residents had already evacuated.
The department sent six fire engines to deal with the blaze and it took almost thirty minutes for firefighters to get the flames under control.
The Red Cross has already helped six people from four of the occupied units.
No one was injured.
A fire investigator says the fire was intentionally set. Damage is estimated at $200,000.
