Lethbridge Fire and Emergency Services has concluded its investigation into a multi-residential fire on the 400 block of Fairmont Boulevard South last week and have deemed the cause as undetermined.

A call came into 911 at approximately 2:45 p.m. on Aug. 19, with firefighters responding from three stations, as well as Coaldale. When crews arrived, one home was fully engulfed in flames and the fire was spreading to the neighbouring homes. Hot, windy weather created additional challenges for firefighters, but crews quickly got the fire under control, containing the spread.

Unfortunately, two homes were destroyed by the fire and a third suffered major damage. There were no injuries reported. Damage to the three residences is estimated to be $1.5 million.
