Southside structure fire

​At approximately 5:50 a.m. Wednesday morning, fire crews responded to a structure fire behind a home in the 300 block of 11 Street South.

A Lethbridge Police Service officer on patrol saw smoke in the area and notified the Public Safety Communications Centre, then immediately facilitated the evacuation of three structures in close proximity.

Fire crews from three stations arrived to find a carport, two vehicles and a neighbouring garage on fire and were able to quickly bring the fire under control.

There were no injuries reported.

The fire is still under investigation and a damage estimate is yet to be determined.
