Fire fighters respond to suspicious blaze in Fort Saskatchewan

A fire in Fort Saskatchewan over the weekend has been deemed suspicious.

The blaze broke out in the early hours of Sunday (Sep. 24) morning near the intersection of 100 Avenue and 104 Street.

“Crews were able to apply water quickly. It didn't take too long. I think we had it put out about ten minutes after we arrived,” said fire chief Jay Parsons.

The fire apparently broke out in a shed behind a property on 100 Avenue. It's believed that this is the same property that had another fire back in February.

Parsons added that the fire was deemed suspicious and is currently being investigated.

In total, the time it took between firefighters getting the call to the blaze being put out was around 15 minutes.

“Fort Saskatchewan crews did an amazing job. We had a very prompt response, and we were able to provide suppression quickly.”

More details are expected to arise as the investigation continues.
