Home fire under investigation

By Lethbridge Herald on February 22, 2024.

Herald photo by Al Beeber Lethbridge Fire/EMS crews attend a fire on 12 St. N. early Wednesday morning. Multiple fire apparatus attended the home where a fire occurred in a bedroom.

Lethbridge Fire and Emergency Services responded to a structure fire to a single-family house in the 400 block of 12 Street North at 6:48 a.m. on Wednesday.

The first crew arrived and contacted the occupants, who had called 911 to report smoke. The home smoke detectors also activated, which gave the two occupants and a pet time to safely exit.

The 13 crew members quickly extinguished the fire and contained it to the room of origin.

The pet was not harmed and no injuries to firefighters were reported, but one of the occupants was transported to hospital for assessment.

The fire is under investigation and a damage estimate is not yet available.
