Fort Saskatchewan firefighters were called to a house fire on Becker Crescent.
At around 7 a.m. on Tuesday (Dec.5) a jogger smelled and saw smoke coming from a Southfort house. The jogger woke the neighbours, 911 was called and the small fire was put out by the neighbour with a garden hose.
“This is the second incident this year where a quick-thinking neighbour called 911, then used a garden hose to prevent a fire from spreading,” said fire chief Shawn McKerry. “The first action should always be to call 911.”
Damage to the home only occurred on the corner of the attached garage.
