The house was occupied at the time of the fire, but RCMP said all occupants escaped without injuries.
Moments after the first fire was extinguished, RMCP and Fire noticed a second structure fire nearby on 91 Avenue and 99 Street.
RCMP said the second residence was empty due to renovations. A house north of it caught fire due to the heat and occupants had to be evacuated, but did not suffer any injuries.
