Multiple fire departments respond to house blaze in White City


Emergency crews from three separate communities east of Regina responded to a serious house fire in White City Tuesday night.

Firefighters from Pilot Butte, Emerald Park and White City were observed at the scene of a house fire on Lipsett Street at around 8 p.m.

Some residents nearby said they heard what sounded like an explosion.

"I didn't hear the initial explosion, but I have heard a lot of people saying there was a lot of explosions,” a resident nearby said.

Flames could be seen rising from the roof of the home at one point during the firefighting operation.

A large, dark pillar of smoke was also visible approximately 10 kilometres away in Regina.

"It was really bad in my lungs so I just backed up over here," another resident said. 

Fire investigators were on the scene much of Wednesday morning taking photos of the damage.

SaskEnergy was also on scene at one point.

It’s unclear if anyone was inside the home at the time of the fire or if anyone was injured.

CTV News has reached out to the Town of White City for additional information surrounding the incident but has not received a response.
