Person trapped in backyard at house fire in Saskatoon rescued

The fire originated inside the attached garage of the single-family house and caused $450,000 in damage.

SASKATOON – Rescue workers helped free a person trapped in the backyard at a house fire in the 3100 block of 37th Street West on Sunday. Saskatoon firefighters responded to the structure fire at about 1:14 a.m. on Dec. 3.

Three fire engines, a rescue unit, the battalion chief, and a ladder truck responded. When they arrived, the house was fully engulfed in flames and firefighters were unable to get to the back of the property at first because of the extent of the fire. The neighbouring houses had been evacuated. There were no injuries.

The fire was brought under control at 1:58 a.m. Fire crews fully extinguished the fire at 3:14 a.m. and turned the scene over to the fire investigator. The investigator wasn’t able to investigate at the time because of structural instability of the area of origin.

The fire originated inside the attached garage of the single-family house and caused $450,000 in damage.

Saskatoon Police Service is investigating.
