Edmonton Fire Rescue had its hands full with a late morning fire on Friday at a townhome complex near 79th Street and 26th Avenue — which has left numerous people displaced.
A witness says the fire appeared small at first on one of the balconies, but quickly grew as neighbours knocked on doors doing their best to warn people.
Deputy Chief Scott MacDonald tells Global News there were no injuries, but extensive damage.
“There’s 16 suites in the building. Eight of them were damaged by fire and between 10 to 12 are damaged by water as well.”
There’s still no word on the cause of the fire, or a damage estimate. (td)
