Fire investigators are working to determine what caused a blaze in northeast Edmonton Friday after a four-storey apartment building was damaged and dozens of residents were evacuated.
“Investigators went back to the scene this morning,” said Edmonton Fire Rescue Services spokesperson Maya Filipovic Saturday. “They’re still trying to figure out cause and damages right now.”
The fire that broke out at 14808 26 St. around 6:30 p.m. spewed black smoke into the air in the city’s Fraser neighbourhood.
The roof of the condo building — which has 32 units — was engulfed in flames when fire services arrived on scene.
“Twenty-six residents were processed through the city’s emergency support response team and given accommodation last night,” Filipovic explained.
Crews were able to get the flames under control by 10 p.m., and the fire was fully out around 2 a.m. Sunday.
No one was injured in the blaze.
