Margaret Avenue fire being investigated

A small fire that broke out Sunday morning in the 46,200 block of Margaret Avenue is being investigated by RCMP and fire officials.

Firefighters from two halls doused a small fire Friday night in the 45,800 block of Silver Avenue.

Crews from Halls 1 and 4 were called out at 6:05 p.m. to a two-story home. The fire started in the attached garage, and firefighters saw smoke and flames as they arrived. They made short work of the blaze, extinguishing it with minimal damage to the garage and no damage to the home.

The cause of the fire looks to be accidental.

The same halls were called out to another fire early Sunday morning. This one happened in the 46,200 block of Margaret Avenue, where smoke and flames emerged from the rear of a single story home.

Again, firefighters worked quickly. The outside of the home took the worst of it, with the interior suffering light smoke and water damage. The residents were home at the time and are currently being looked after by Emergency Social Services.

The cause of this fire is being investigated by fire department officials and the RCMP.
