South Lethbridge Apartment Fire

​Lethbridge firefighters responded to the 2100 block of 35 Street South at approximately 0600 hours for a structure fire.

The fire was originally reported by a neighbor and when firefighters arrived, visible flames were seen coming from a third story apartment window. A total of 15 firefighters from two stations responded and were able to quickly contain and extinguish the fire. Initial damage is estimated to be $15 000.00.

After preliminary investigation it appears to be accidental, however fire investigators are still on scene to determine the actual origin and cause of the fire.
